No matter the quality of the production, sales or marketing of a product, if the supply chain—the process that moves the product from supplier to consumer—is poorly managed and inefficient, all operations are compromised. That’s why a logistics and transportation manager plays such a critical role in nearly every industry. These in-demand organization experts analyze, coordinate and oversee the entire life cycle of a product, from its acquisition and distribution to its allocation and delivery. Gain these essential skills with Sullivan’s on-campus and online Associate Degree in Logistics & Transportation Management.
