Logistic Officer Duties and Responsibilities
A Logistic Officer must oversee and coordinate various tasks in order to maintain adequate levels of food, water and other supplies and equipment for military or other personnel. We have reviewed several job listings and found the following among the core Logistic Officer duties and responsibilities.
Coordinate and Track Shipments
Once order requests or purchase orders are received, it is up to the Logistic Officer to manage the pulling and packing of materials and arrange appropriate transportation. Among the tasks that might need to be completed in this responsibility include freight consolidation, cost analysis, routing and scheduling. Logistic Officers must also track shipments to ensure they arrive on time and that shipment and delivery processes adhere to any pertinent regulations.
A Logistic Officer is typically responsible for the storage of materials that are to be used by military personnel or that will be shipping out to military bases or other locations. Warehouse management duties include maintaining inventory, ordering shipping materials, operating necessary equipment and managing warehouse personnel.
Analyze Supply Chain Systems
The Logistic Officer must ensure that all aspects of a logistics team, such as shipping, warehousing and procurement, are working together to fill orders and deliver materials on a timely basis. They will review all processes and systems and design and implement new plans and procedures as needed. They are also responsible for creating and maintaining contingency plans.
It often falls to the Logistic Officer to manage the safety and security of a military base or establishment. This might include checking in visitors, handling emergency situations, patrolling areas and preparing reports.
