What are the duties of a logistics specialist?

In training to be a logistics specialist, you’ll learn how goods and ware are received and properly warehoused, how to make cost-effective and efficient routes, and how to prepare cargo lists and loading charts. You’ll operate forklifts, load trucks, organize the unloading of goods, compile deliveries, prepare quotes, and assist with inventory work and simple annual statements. Here, you will apply operational logistics systems and also help with their further development.
