Job Opportunities in Logistics and Supply Chain Industry
Logistics is involved everywhere. An integral part of the product lifecycle, team logistics ensures that the products that you see, experience and use are made available to you at your place of residence or anywhere else you demand.
If you are bent towards the logistics end, chances are that you have kept a track of its growth trajectory. In case you haven’t, let us explain. Pacing at an unprecedented rate, the Indian logistics market is expected to touch USD307 billion by 2020. With a 14.4% GDP spend on logistics by India, about six percentage points higher than the other developing countries, the industry’s future is bright and certain.
Having said that, most people are still not aware about what they can expect after completing a diploma or degree in logistics. Many think that it is only related to working in some courier company or being a part of some organization’s dispatch centre. Breaking the myth, let us bring to light some of the most gratifying career opportunities as a logistician.
Demand Planning Analysts
Analyzing a product’s demand in the market can be quite intriguing. This also creates a direct impact on the inventory holding. Excessive inventory can block capital while lower inventory can cause the product to get out of stock in the market. In both cases, it hits the company’s profitability. Assessing and managing the inventory by ascertaining market demand and making subsequent purchases comes under the purview of a demand planning analyst.
Are you great at communication and always win negotiations? If yes, you are best fit as a procurement manager. Your role will help organizations get the best product at a competitive price. Plus you will also be responsible to manage the entire purchases for the company.
Customer Care Officer
As a customer care officer, your job is to ensure that the customer stays happy and content all through the product lifecycle. You are expected to provide them information, meet their request and solve their concerns right from the decision making stage and continue serving them even after the sale is made.
Supply Chain Consultants
Many small- mid size businesses, that do not have in-house logisticians at work consider the views of external supply chain consultants extremely valuable. The role involves gaining deep understanding about the industry and advising organizations about their vendor and inventory management.
