IT'S A GROWING INDUSTRY
As companies sent manufacturing overseas and/or outsourced portions of their production it gave a huge boost to logistics providers. Companies look to experienced partners to help them develop integrated logistics solutions that ensure their products get from point A to point B, no matter how far apart those two points may be. Globalization has pushed companies to look at logistics as a way to remain competitive.
GAIN INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE
Logistics is an international business and most companies are dealing with both domestic and international customers. This industry can help you develop relationships around the globe, and possibly even offer an opportunity to work in other countries. If you are fluent in a second language (i.e. Spanish, Korean, German, etc.) that's a bonus for your employer, and it could give you a boost up through the ranks.
