How will my career in supply chain management benefit from working with a customs clearance & freight forwarding company?
Hello Anant, Greetings!
Freight forwarding role is a great start to learn the nuances of the supply chain. But having said that, you may have to diversify your role a bit and start to get exposure to other areas related to this. Distribution would be an ideal function. So leverage this experience and try to get additional responsibilities. If you are into a 3PL operations and providing freight forwarding as a service then you may have to switch to a role with bigger portfolio. I’m not asking you to jump now but what I’m saying is to consider this in your next job move.
Note: Your current role would be a great fit for any larger cross border supply chain roles as well.
All the best –
