Logistics And Supply Chain Internships

Introduction To Logistics And Supply Chain Internships. What are they?
Logistics jobs and careers can be stressful and demanding but also highly satisfying. If you are the type of person who loves to be in charge of seeing a task through from beginning to end in a logical, systematic way and at optimum speed and cost, then graduate logistics jobs could be perfect for you and logistics internships can be the ideal way to get a foot in the door.

Logistics and supply chain internships are all about giving you some real hands on experience in the workplace and your experience can differ depending on the company you are doing your placement with. You could be doing your placement with companies that transport their goods nationally whilst other supply chain internships could be with companies that are exporting and transporting goods all around the world.

Logistics management internships or industrial placements (depending on the degree you are doing) take you away from the classroom and into the real work environment. This is valuable work experience that can give your CV a real boost.

Who Can Apply For Logistics And Supply Chain Internships?
Especially if you are looking to do logistics jobs at management level in the future, industrial placements, supply chain summer internships and longer placements might only be open to undergraduates who are doing, or who have already completed, a degree in this field. This could be a degree in transport and logistics or you might be studying an engineering or business related subject which focuses on manufacturing, operations or supply. Some companies may accept other degrees so it’s worth researching if you are interested in this type of career.

The great news is, many logistics and supply chain management internships are with some of the world’s biggest and most well known brand names and you could be doing your placement either in the UK or overseas. A willingness to travel is essential as for some logistics and transportation internships, you might need to relocate during that period.

What Are The Different Types Of Logistics And Supply Chain Internships?
Any company that develops and creates products for consumers and industry needs to be able to get those products to the end customer. Logistics internships will give you real insight into how this is done and it depends on the type of company you are doing your placement with, which type of internships in supply chain and logistics you will be doing.

Your logistics internships could be focussed around:

When Do I Apply For Logistics And Supply Chain Internships?
If you are doing an industrial placement as part of your degree then you could receive guidance from your university on the best times to start registering your interest with the companies you would like to work with.

For other logistics internships, whatever area you wish to focus on, companies have different dates for different types of logistics internships. Some internship programmes will run simultaneously and application closing dates will be the same or similar. For other companies their logistics internship programmes might run at different times throughout the year and so application opening and closing dates could be staggered.
