Logistics management is a business management program that prepares graduates for employment in the areas of supply chain management, inventory control, materials management, and distribution. The field of logistics management includes occupations such as supervisors and/or managers of transportation, storage, and/or distribution; helpers, laborers, and/or hand material movers; transportation/machine and vehicle material movers; and freight forwarding.

By focusing on efficiency, logistics managers reduce costs in many areas and add value to the bottom line. Persons employed in the storage and distribution arena plan, direct, and coordinate the storage and distribution operations within an organization. With the aid of industry-specific software, many managers are able to more efficiently prepare and review invoices, work orders, and consumption reports. Similarly, shipping and transportation managers utilize resource planning software systems to improve the speed and efficiency of shipping and receiving. These managers supervise and coordinate the activities of transportation and material moving machines and vehicle operators.
