Industrial Traffic Managers


Employment for transportation, storage, and distribution managers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers from 2018 to 2028, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Large and medium-sized companies are increasingly using computers to store and retrieve records. Computerized conveyor systems, robotics, and trucks, as well as scanners, are increasing productivity and eliminating the need for large numbers of workers. Nevertheless, managers will still be needed to arrange and oversee shipments before they go out and when they arrive. Employment for shipping, receiving, and traffic clerks is expected to decline during this same time period as a result of increasing automation of their duties.
