The logistics analyst will be in charge of setting up and/or running systems within a complex logistics operation to gather data on the complete process of movement and warehousing of goods and seeking efficiencies in them. The work could well require a good deal of travel to overseas or national terminals, depots and warehouses to see processes first hand and gather information on operation.
The gathered data will be used to work out means of creating more efficient processes and systems, often through the use of sophisticated computer systems, but also through the analyst’s instinct for the task. The analyst will be reporting regularly to senior management, and must be able to identify targets for efficiency makeovers and back up the plans with hard facts and figures.
Explaining actions and helping to implement major structural and operational changes will help to keep the logistics team informed and involved. The search for new efficiencies is a never-ending task, but with an analytical approach, it can be successfully done to the benefit of the company. Hence, good analysts are highly valued members of any logistics operation.
Needless to say, an analyst must possess excellent analytical skills and be able to have an instinct for positive changes as well as the ability to perform complex calculations when planning out potential improvements. She or he must be able to keep on top of many lines of data collection; this information might be gleaned from delving into operational data or the analyst might oversee a team to gather information. Therefore good IT skills and man management are essential.
Logistics analysts are often required to travel, perhaps internationally, so a commitment to the company will be a demonstrable necessity.

Tucked right down in the south east corner of Wales is Monmouthshire. It shares borders with England (Gloucestershire and Herefordshire) and Glamorgan to the west. The largest settlement is Abergavenny, with about 15,000 population, followed by Chepstow, Caldicot and Monmouth, each with around 10,000. Both Severn Bridges arrive in Wales in Monmouthshire, although the eastern bridge passes over a small part of Gloucestershire first.
Monmouthshire is a relatively rural county, although there are population centres on the southern coast onto the Bristol Channel. The bridges provide excellent links between Bristol and Newport and Cardiff beyond, and these cities are the prime locations if you’re seeking Logistics Analyst jobs and are prepared to commute.
