Logisticians: competently optimising flows of goods

Logisticians work in an industry highly important for a functioning economy. They are responsible for the coordination of flows of goods and information and support their company in reducing costs. Hays will help you find your dream job at a producing company or at a logistics service provider.

Which opportunities do logisticians have on the labour market?

As all companies specialised in producing goods have a demand for logistics specialists, logisticians have good chances to find a suitable job. There is even a shortage of skilled workers in certain specialist areas, such as in the case of specialists with a commercial qualification. Logisticians specialised in robotics and artificial intelligence, preferably already during their studies, have excellent prospects as well. Topics like these currently have influence on the industry and will become increasingly important in the future.

What are the tasks and responsibilities of logisticians?

Logisticians have a broad range of varied, responsible tasks. Depending on the position’s profile within the company, they may be responsible for the procurement or disposal of goods, production logistics or sales. Logisticians who focus on supply chain management, on the other hand, supervise the entire flow of goods and identify potentials for optimisation. Furthermore, there are other specialist fields, such as transport or warehouse logistics, where the inspection of incoming goods, for example, belongs to the daily business.

  • Coordination and planning of production processes
  • Personnel planning
  • Inspection of incoming and outgoing goods
  • Ensuring traceability
  • Placement and processing of orders
  • Preparation and acceptance of offers
  • Processing of customer complaints

Which hard skills and soft skills should logisticians have?

Logisticians need to have completed an appropriate training – amongst others, there are basic training programmes, training programmes for people with a vocational qualification in the commercial area or even specialised study programmes. Moreover, logisticians should have a good technical understanding and good IT skills to be able to coordinate the flows of goods by means of electronic equipment.

  • Software skills (e.g. SAP)
  • English skills (and further language skills in case of international companies)
  • Team spirit
  • Accuracy
  • Leadership qualities (in case of management positions)

What is the average salary of logisticians?

At companies subject to a collective agreement, logisticians have a starting salary of between EUR 25,000 and EUR 35,000 per year, depending on the field of expertise. With increasing experience and managerial responsibility, the salary increases accordingly. Logisticians who have an academic degree in logistics can expect a higher starting salary.
