Jobs for Logisticians

Possible tasks

The logistics profession requires excellent coordination skills.Organization, coordination and planning are significant priorities for logisticians.

Logistics is usually practiced by those who completed training as a forwarding agent or merchant for wholesale and foreign trade. In addition to training, study courses for the logistics profession can be completed. Courses such as business administration or industrial engineering, each with a focus on logistics, enable entry into the profession. With a master's degree, warehouse logistics technicians can also work as logisticians.The task of the logistician is often described using the Seven-Rights of Logistics by Plowman. This states that logisticians supply the right goods in the right quantities and of the right quality to the right customer at the right time and the right place at the right cost.

Specifically, tasks of a logistician include goods coordination and transport of goods, as well as storage, cost optimization and resource planning. Furthermore, logisticians are responsible for coordinating the flow of goods. The optimal organization of the production line is ensured by the forwarding agent or logistician.Close collaboration with production planning, purchasing and supply chain management, as well as with suppliers and customers requires communication skills and team spirit on the part of the logistician. Working with databases is another important part of their duties. Logisticians activate ordering processes and enter these into the database. Monitoring of the storage inventory is also part of their work.
