Industrial Traffic Managers
Large and medium-sized companies are increasingly using computers to store and retrieve records. Computerized conveyor systems, robotics, and trucks, as well as scanners, are increasing productivity and eliminating the need for large numbers of workers. Nevertheless, employment for transportation, storage, and distribution managers is expected to grow by 5 percent through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Managers will still be needed to arrange and oversee shipments before they go out and when they arrive.
