Supply Chain Managers

Employment Prospects


Supply chain managers work in manufacturing, federal government; professional, scientific, and technical consulting services; management of companies and enterprises; and wholesale trade. Some examples of companies that use supply chain management professionals are Amazon, DHL, Dell Computers, and Wal-Mart, to name only a few. The Department of Labor does not provide data specifically for supply chain managers. Jobs that overlap supply chain managers include logisticians (182,050 employed), industrial production managers (185,790 employed), and transportation, storage, and distribution managers (132,040 employed). Memberships to professional associations can also give some idea of the scope of the field. For example, the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals has more than 8,500 members and APICS, another association for supply chain professionals, has more than 45,000 members.
