Logistics, Distribution & Transportation

High impact leaders, ready when you need them.

Korn Ferry’s Global Logistics, Distribution & Transportation Sector focuses on helping companies attract, develop, and retain best-in-class leaders. With a noticeable shortage of managers prepared to take on pivotal positions, and a need to improve efficiencies in response to a swiftly changing market, investing in talent is critical. We offer a full range of solutions proven to address logistics and transportation organizational talent needs — from strategic search services, competency-based assessments, and engaging, interactive high-potential leadership development programs to one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning programs.

Acquiring talent is good. Building bench strength is better.

Acquisitions, consolidations, retirement, a rising demand for innovative services, as well as the involvement of private equity/private investors are all driving the industry’s need to identify and develop the next generation of leaders. These leaders require skills in operational execution, developing and inspiring people, driving growth, strategic planning, influence and networking, technical competence, change management, and international business exposure. Increasingly, talent is a critical differentiator and competitive advantage.

For the greatest return on talent, invest in potential.
