Niche Job Boards See High Demand for Logistics Professionals, Warehouse Associates and Drivers
(May 25, 2011)
JobsInLogistics.com and JobsInTrucks.com received record job postings in first four months of 2011
JobsInLogistics.com, the leading niche job board for the logistics and supply chain profession, experienced a 36 percent increase in job postings and resume searches in the first four months of 2011 versus 2010. JobsInTrucks.com, the top driver job board, experienced a whopping 140 percent increase.
As the economy improves, there is a pent-up demand to fill logistics, warehousing, transportation and manufacturing positions across the USA. The top specialized job boards for the supply chain industry are achieving record revenues from job postings and resume searches.
When the economy collapsed in October 2008, the supply chain industry was hit hard. With lower manufacturing orders and a drastic drop in the sale of consumer goods, many companies immediately introduced large layoffs or implemented hiring freezes. 2009 was a year of caution, with companies hiring only essential positions.
Many established logistics recruiters went out of business. In 2010, based on the increase in postings on JobsInLogistics.com, hiring returned to the same levels as 2007. Now, in 2011, the floodgates have opened and JobsInLogistics.com and JobsInTrucks.com are experiencing the highest volume of job postings in 11 years.
"The supply chain/logistics industry has always been the backbone of the American economy," said Don Firth, president of JobsInLogistics.com, Inc. "This surge in demand for new hires is a great barometer of the confidence that suppliers and retailers are placing on the future."
