Sector Overview

The Logistics sector is a significant part of Singapore’s economy and is deeply entrenched in our everyday lives. The workforce in the Logistics sector ensures the efficient flow of goods and services throughout Singapore and across the world.

Today, the Logistics sector contributes about 7% of Singapore’s GDP and provides a wide range of attractive employment opportunities for about 200,000 people. Singapore is ranked first in Asia on the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index 2016 and is also home to a large base of multi-national Logistics sector leaders. Most importantly, there is an ongoing joint effort amongst the government, employers, unions, and education institutions to develop clear information on structured career pathways in the Logistics sector. Individuals can look to these pathways to better understand the progression opportunities the sector has to offer.

One interesting feature of a career in the Logistics sector is its accessibility. Individuals with a wide range of qualifications can enter the sector and deepen their skills through experience and lifelong training opportunities. A  Logistics career is also exciting because it is constantly subject to emerging business and technological trends. This requires a skilled workforce that can respond with new capabilities to make the supply chain better, faster, and more resilient.
