Logistics Planning and Management Services is a pathway within the Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics Career Cluster. A Career Cluster is a grouping of occupations and broad industries based on commonalities. There are 16 Career Clusters. Career clusters link what students learn in school with the knowledge and skills they need for success in college and careers. The Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics Career Cluster exposes students to careers and businesses involved in the planning, management, and movement of people, materials, and products by road, air, rail and water. There are seven pathways in this cluster:

- Facility and Mobile Equipment Maintenance - Health, Safety, and Environmental Management - Logistics Planning and Management Services - Sales and Service - Transportation Operations - Transportation Systems/Infrastructure Planning, Management, and Regulation - Warehousing and Distribution Center Operations

Employment Outlook Logistician is an example career in this pathway.

The number of opportunities for logisticians is expected to grow at an average rate through the year 2012. Nationally, salaries range from $34,000 to $90,400 (O*NET Online, 2006).
