Logistics is all about getting materials to the right customers, across the country or around the world, at the right time. It’s about efficiency and ‘just in time’ delivery – think ‘Tetris’ meets ‘Need for Speed.’
Logistics companies make their money by finding ways to do more with less, combining shipments, reducing fuel use, improving routes. The byproduct of all this efficiency? A smaller environmental impact. As the Crossroads of America, Indiana has a strong logistics industry, and jobs like planning/scheduling specialist and inventory control specialist are on the front lines of ‘green logistics’ by making distribution and transportation more efficient.
Indiana is #1 in interstate highway access.
