Typical work activities performed by these professionals are establishing personnel shifts, assigning tasks, directing vehicle repairs, liaising with stakeholders, and finding solutions to improve efficiency. Those seeking to work in the logistics department should highlight in their resumes qualifications like organization, attention to details, communication, networking, and multitasking. It's usual for Transportation Planners to hold a Bachelor's Degree in a relevant field, although a high school diploma is sufficient.
