Distribution Managers - Employment & Outlook

The table below provides information about the number of workers in this occupation in various regions. It also provides information about the expected growth rate and future job openings.

Employment

Storage and transportation manager jobs are found throughout the nation. However, many of these jobs are located in California, New Jersey, and Texas.

Major employers:

  • Local and long distance trucking firms
  • Courier services
  • Federal, state, and local government agencies
  • Business management companies
  • Warehousing companies

Outlook

Demand for this occupation will be about average. The use of computers to track the movement of freight will reduce the number of transportation managers needed. However, competition is strong in the storage and transportation of goods. Businesses are trying to reduce the amount of time they need to deliver materials. They are also trying to improve their customer service. 

The fastest growth for managers will be with courier services, such as UPS and FedEx. With more people buying items over the Internet, more drivers will be needed to deliver them. As a result, more supervisors will be needed to monitor delivery. Growth will also be good in the warehousing and storage industry.
