As a natural outgrowth of its rich manufacturing history,
the Triad region is home to many outstanding Logistics &
Distribution operations. After all, once products were manufactured,
they had to be shipped. And before they were manufactured,
raw materials and parts had to be brought in. Serving those
needs, the region has an excellent road, rail and air infrastructure,
and the region's location makes it easy to distribute anywhere
in the eastern United States in one day.
But Logistics & Distribution is so much more than loading
a truck or rail car and hitting the road. The global economy
and sophisticated supply chain management require the state-of-the-art
Logistics & Distribution companies and techniques. Road,
rail, airplane, cargo ships and even delivery of "virtual"
products and services demand timely and 100 percent accurate
Within the Logistics & Distribution cluster, there are
a wide range of jobs from designing to planning to carry out
the Logistics & Distribution for products and services.
A large number of jobs can translate into marketable skills
in this area from international business experience (including
military) to supply chain management to office and management
jobs. Because Logistics & Distribution is an essential
part of Advanced Manufacturing, the two clusters have a number
of jobs that can draw people from either field.
