In logistics, career levels of specialist, leading specialist, manager, department head and logistics director are distinguished. A young logistics specialist can find a job already while studying, having completed practice at the simplest stages, for example, in a warehouse, in the transport departments of companies. Many large companies are happy to accept our students for internships for further development within the company. The crown of a logistics career is the Director of Logistics. He is involved in developing the company’s strategy, is responsible for managing huge flows and resources, and is a member of the Board of Directors.
Graduates with a degree in Logistics can independently engage in business, since the creation of their own logistics company is quite common in this area. Such a company provides services in the field of transportation, warehousing, procurement management, participates in the development of logistics IT solutions for other companies. Of course, this will require additional training, but deep mastery of professional skills and competencies is a key factor in a successful career in this field of activity. The fact that logistics is the connecting link between all levels of the company allows the logistician, as he moves up the career ladder, to interact with most departments, to understand their work and place in the corporate governance system. Such an experience, together with an active lifestyle and the desire to succeed, can become the basis of a good career.
