Logistics Engineers

Work Environment

Logistics engineers work in offices in many industries. Some work in the logistical departments of companies, others work in companies that provide logistics services, such as companies that handle freight shipping. Part of their work day is spent on the computer, reviewing and analyzing data, tracking schedules and inventory sheets, and creating spreadsheets, reports, presentations, and other documents. They work closely with logistics analysts, other engineers, production managers, and other logistics and supply chain workers. The work is fast-paced and can be stressful due to production and operation deadlines. Logistics engineers must be able to solve any problems that arise as quickly and efficiently as possible. They may spend some time traveling to work sites, such as manufacturing plants, distribution centers, warehouses, and other locations.
