SCOPE OF LOGISTICS AND SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

According to a Fortune report, the logistics industry is worth 1$.3 trillion. However, it is still facing a dearth in terms of recruitment and requires 1.4 million new supply chain workers by 2018. This offers a wide range of job opportunities for students pursuing this programme. In fact, the demand for supply chain managers is such that many universities around the world organise supply chain only fairs which attract hundreds of companies looking to recruit logistics students for either internships or full-time positions. Interestingly, the last few years has seen many startups engage in inventory movement like Flipkart and Snapdeal. Such companies are looking to expand their supply networks to various corners of the country which requires the expertise of supply chain managers.
