The Exciting Future for Logistics in Australia
The world is becoming a smaller and smaller place to do business and so supply chain professionals are adopting new supply chain management (SCM) methods that move goods with velocity and adaptability meeting the demands of our modern world. Logistics has become a major contributor to the success of business more than ever before and opportunities for an exciting career abound.
Every sector from maritime to rail and road recognise that without the right people with the right training they will be left behind the race to modernise and keep pace with the rapid changes taking place around the world. This is particularly true for Australia due to our proximity to the burgeoning new economies that will emerge on our door step in the Asia region. Effective SCM is no longer a series of holding silos where expensive stock is held and pushed along the line from manufacturer to consumer. It takes new thinking, skill and planning to maintain a modern supply chain which must be fully integrated with information freely flowing between all stakeholders along the entire supply chain.
