Logistics Engineering

Logistics is a very diverse sector, integral to pretty much every part of modern society. Logisticians make sure that goods get to where they need to be, when they need to be there. Within an organization they develop relationships with suppliers and clients, ensure that products are in the right place at the right time, understand the needs of their customers, and actively seek more effective, cheaper and faster ways to transport products. As so many different industries and organizations are dependent upon logistics, taking a role in the sector can means working in any number of locations. From an office to a factory floor or a delivery center, your daily workplace could take any form.
