Logistics administrators arrange the storage and distribution of goods to ensure products are delivered to the right location on time with reasonable prices. They supervise deliveries and shipment of products and packages. They are also responsible for managing orders and shipments to ensure customer satisfaction and to achieve company objectives at the same time.
Logistics administrators must be organized and able to monitor and support the process of the supply chain. In order to succeed in their role, they should have considerable knowledge and experience in logistics management, critical thinking skills, communication skills, analytical skills, and attention to detail.
Logistics administrators work 40 hours a week Monday to Friday from 9 to 5. Some companies operate 24 hours a day and, in those instances, logistics administrators work in shifts.
