Logistics Management 2012 Salary Survey

By Patrick Burnson, Executive Editor
May 01, 2012


According to the findings of Logistics Management’s 28th Annual Salary Survey, average earnings and compensation have actually leveled off over the past year. However, our research team also found that an aging workforce is giving way to younger, more highly trained professionals who also happen to be savvy technologists. For the logistics professionals who have adopted today’s technological tools, higher salaries are clearly corresponding.

But our research team warns that the cutting edge skills that newlyhired workers might have coming out of college are going to be obsolete in three years to five years, so they have to determine how to keep improving in key areas such as decision analysis, IT tools, cross-functional and cross organizational teaming, as well as finance.
