Texas is on the move. Every day, everywhere in the northern, southern, eastern, and western parts of the state, people and products travel hundreds of thousands of miles of roads, waterways, railroad tracks, and air routes—all because of those who work in Transportation, Distribution & Logistics. These professionals are responsible for ensuring that everyone and everything gets to the right place on time at the lowest possible cost. They are experts at planning and project management, increasingly using technology, such as Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags to track the locations of shipments. If you are a mover and shaker, have a talent for organization, or yearn to see new places, then Transportation, Distribution & Logistics could be the right career cluster for you.
