The Invisible Heroes of Capitalism

The Invisible Heroes of Capitalism

Want an essential high-demand profession? Want to be a key officer in the World Capitalist system?

Behind every great leader there was an even greater logistician. --- Cox

Then answer this quick question— what is the huge key advantage that has made Wal-Mart the world’s biggest retailer? Why are their stocks high and prices low?

Give up? Wal-Mart’s Logisticians control an incredibly efficient supply system!

What is a Logistician? They are the invisible intellectual force behind the global success of the capitalist system.

Wal-Mart Logisticians cut costs and help the company offer its famously low prices— they do this by their highly efficient control of inventory. Their Logisticians continually analyze and coordinate the logistical functions of the huge company, and keep it running fast and strong.

Just how do the Logisticans do this? They control an efficient supply chain management (effectively managing the supply chain, ensuring that the customer gets the products they require when they want it, at a price they are prepared to pay.)

Logisticians oversee shipping and transportation, distribution to wholesalers or retailers, warehousing, and the just-in-time delivery that helps minimize costs and maximize productivity. Many of these jobs are in manufacturing or retail businesses.

Logisticians are key players in virtually every field— including energy, communications, finance, information technology, and government.

In fact, logisticians are responsible for the entire life cycle of every product— including all the acquisition, distribution, internal allocation, delivery, and final disposal of product resources!

Logisticians have many varied job titles— Integrated Logistics Support Manager (ILS Manager), Logistician, Logistics Team Lead, Production Planner, Logistics Engineers, Logistics Analysts.

Examples include accountants, sales managers, database administrators, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and special agents.

Logisticians all have a similar educational background, and we’ll get to their education requirements soon.

But look at all the important fields that Logisticians control—

Administration and Management — Knowledge of business and management principles involved in strategic planning, resource allocation, human resources modeling, leadership technique, production methods, and coordination of people and resources.

Transportation — Knowledge of principles and methods for moving people or goods by air, rail, sea, or road, including the relative costs and benefits.

Public Safety and Security — Knowledge of relevant equipment, policies, procedures, and strategies to promote effective local, state, or national security operations for the protection of people, data, property, and institutions.


Mathematics — Knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, statistics, and their applications.

Production and Processing — Knowledge of raw materials, production processes, quality control, costs, and other techniques for maximizing the effective manufacture and distribution of goods.

Education and Training — Knowledge of principles and methods for curriculum and training design, teaching and instruction for individuals and groups, and the measurement of training effects.

Clerical — Knowledge of administrative and clerical procedures and systems such as word processing, managing files and records, stenography and transcription, designing forms, and other office procedures and terminology.

Most of these Logistical occupations require a four-year bachelor’s degree.

Instead of a master’s or MBA, Logisticians need work-related skill, knowledge, or experience, to add to their bachelor’s degree.

Several years of work-related logistical experience, on-the-job training, and/or vocational training, is a huge boost to your degree, for getting the top jobs. That’s because many of these occupations involve coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others.

For example, an accountant must complete four years of college— and work for several years in accounting, to be considered qualified.

If math is a natural for you, if logic and order appeal to you… and if you want a solid profession, explore a degree involving Logistics.

Bottom line? Logisticians run our world. They are the invisible heroes of success in commerce and capitalism, always working behind the scenes.

Worldwide, Logisticians are highly paid, and always in great demand.

Want to be a key player on the global stage? Our world would grind to a halt without its invisible controllers— Logisticians!
