What does a Logistics Director do?

Logistics account executives are sales professionals who work with clients in the shipping, freight, and other transportation industries. They typically sell B2B products and services, and act as an intermediary between their clients and the vendors or providers. They emphasize solutions to alleviate client challenges. They cultivate leads, present sales pitches, close sales, and nurture existing accounts by building strong relationships. The priority is on growing their account base and increasing revenue from existing accounts. They may be expected to meet certain sales quotas.

Logistics account executives typically have at least a high school diploma, although additional education or training is a plus. They generally have experience in sales, and a background in B2B sales is helpful. They must have excellent communication skills and the ability to deliver a persuasive sales pitch.
