A logistics manager works closely with employees and customers in companies that ship goods out. The position is often a two-way street, since the logistics manager will also be dealing with shipments coming back to the company from customers. Logistics managers are also responsible for constantly improving the shipping process to suit both the company and the customers, while monitoring the quality, too.

Personal Objectives

The logistics manager may use personal objectives on his resume, if he has had a long career within the industry. Basic objectives, such as learning more skills or knowledge within the industry may not be appealing to an employer, especially if the resume reveals that the manager has had years of practical work experience. Rather, the logistics manager could focus on personal achievements that the resume will prove to set new career objectives. This can include using his given skill set to become an asset to a leading organisation and continue to develop and perfect his skills and knowledge of the industry.

Customer Satisfaction

Since the logistics manager is sending out goods and dealing directly with the customers of the business, a career objective may be to develop positive, professional and long-lasting relationships with customers. Employers may see this as a positive and effective career objective, as the customers and clients are the backbone of any business. Without the business of customers, a company may not be able to stay active and afloat.

Strategic Logistics

The logistics manager is also responsible for internal operations within the business before the goods and products leave the business for the customers or stores. Logistic strategies is another career objective a logistics manager can have, as the responsibilities like transportation, schedules, warehouse managing, stock control and internal employee structure in the logistics department are all issues the manager must control.

Using IT in Forecasting

Many companies are using internal IT systems to manage and organise orders, shipments and employees in the business. Logistics managers are often expected to be familiar with these types of software to help manage and organise the logistics tasks. The software is also used in forecasting inventory numbers, delivery times for customers nationwide and the overall transport and shipping costs. A career objective for a logistic manager could be to continuously work with IT and software programs to improve personal skills and be able to forecast the logistics needs of the business at any given time.
