New Search Tool Guides Prospective Students To Training Resources For In-Demand Supply Chain Jobs

NEW YORK, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As U.S. companies and workers struggle to recover from the global economic recession, the thriving supply chain and logistics sector represents a bright spot for many job seekers. To help current and prospective supply chain professionals build the skills they need, Inbound Logistics magazine launched an online Logistics Education Decision Support Tool ( http://www.inboundlogistics.com/cms/search-tool/education/) for exploring logistics education programs.

Education resources are essential in creating a workforce to meet the growing demand for trained logistics professionals. Transportation and warehousing employment is expected to increase by 20 percent by 2020, generating 853,000 new jobs, while high-level logistics management opportunities are projected to increase by seven percent within the next seven years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Inbound Logistics is dedicated to connecting workers with supply chain education resources, from warehouse operations training to MBA programs. The new tool allows prospective students to select their area of educational interest and request program information from targeted schools and associations.

Many of the certificates and degrees in the decision support tool are available partially or entirely online, making supply chain education accessible to anyone, anywhere – including logistics professionals seeking career advancement, veterans and active military personnel, displaced workers, and recent high school graduates.

To further promote logistics education, Inbound Logistics teamed with the American Society of Transportation and Logistics (AST&L) to offer a $2,500 undergraduate scholarship. To apply, students must submit a 2,000-word essay on why they chose a logistics and supply chain career, and how they envision that career impacting the company they will work for, as well as the U.S. and global economy.

Submissions must be submitted by March 15, 2013 to Laurie Denham of AST&L at info@astl.org. Inbound Logistics Editor Felecia Stratton will judge the essays and feature the winner in the magazine's June 2013 Logistics Careers and Education issue.

About Inbound Logistics Inbound Logistics is the pioneering educational publication of demand-driven logistics practices, or supply chain management. IL's educational mission is to guide businesses to efficiently manage logistics, reduce and speed inventory, and neutralize transportation cost increases by aligning supply to demand.
