Supply chain management has evolved from a clerical function to a strategic process, requiring expert knowledge of everything from the production to the storage of goods.

As company operations become more complex, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts the demand for skilled logisticians will grow by 26 percent from 2010 to 2020.
