Career Outlook for Supply Chain Professionals

Thanks to technology and business innovation, the world continues to grow smaller and more interconnected. As companies increasingly extend their operations globally, professionals trained in transportation and logistics have become critical to business success.

Supply chain management, logistics and procurement are some of the fastest growing fields nationwide. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that from 2022-2032, employment for supply chain managers will grow 8%; logistics analysts and specialists by 18% ; data scientists and data analytics specialists by 35%; industrial, production, packaging and manufacturing engineers by 12%, and market researchers and forecasters by 13% — all much faster than average.

The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the field. In 2020, e-commerce sales increased 34% over the previous year, and more than 50,000 transportation and 31,000 warehouse jobs were added in November 2021 alone. While demand has risen, in 2023 more than half of manufacturing CEOs report challenges in finding, training and retaining qualified talent

High Earning Potential

In addition, bonuses and stock options can provide a welcome boost to base pay. Sixty-five percent of respondents reported receiving a bonus, which was an average of $22,021, with the top 5 percent receiving an average bonus of $143,240 in 2020.

Obtaining an advanced degree in the field gives you an edge in competition for better jobs and can be a key factor in advancing to a higher level within an organization. Specializing in an area such as transportation and logistics can also be important factor in career advancement.
