  • You are a B Tech with 5 years experience and you had a PGDM also. What I feel is that even though you have experience in Logistic profile your qualification is not in that line. So I suggest you try a certificate course or diploma course in that line also. Many are available online and you can choose the one you feel suitable for you and completing that will not be a problem for you in that line. Once you complete that chances of getting a job will not be very difficult for you.
    Based on your experience you can try for any of the following.
    1. Analyst: Good mathematical and computer skills are required for this post. This is an entry-level post. Getting that collected and analysing the same will be the purpose of this job. If you acquire some knowledge in the planning of logistics and analysis, you will have better chances.

  • You have already worked in some logistic companies and I hope that you must have acquired some experience there in the line of marketing as well as inventory management and support systems. There are some sites like indiastudychannel, naukri, monsterindia, linkedin, timesjobs etc where you can keep a watch on the logistic support jobs and shortlist ones where you have sufficient proficiency to compete and apply. The present pandemic situation is not favourable for applying jobs as companies are selective in recruiting people at this juncture but you can very well upload your resume in some of these niche sites so that they inform you time to time for the matching positions with your resume. Today in transport sector one of the most important and responsible job is to manage the inventory in the main warehouses as well as keep a track of goods in movement. As the volume of operations is large it has to be tackled with computer applications designed for this purpose. If you have experience of such applications or can learn some of them online then you can mange the inventory just sitting in the home once the company entrust you the hobby providing necessary permission to use they site online. Many big chains of beauty and fashion product business houses are using same type of applications for managing their inventory in their outlets throughout the country. So the main thing is to make the merchandise available in the different parts as per the demand projections based on the historical data and once the inventory lying in the warehouses is aligned in that fashion then the operating costs can be minimised. So, this is a dynamic process and any person who can control and suggest movement of goods in this fashion would be an indispensable person for the organisation and his job security would be more than a normal employee. In case you have not exposed to such work earlier then it makes sense to go for some short duration course to acquire those skills.

    You might be aware that today logistics means managing, directing, and controlling the flow of goods, services, information and other such resources from the source of manufacturing or production to the marketplace or to the consumers. This is a herculean task and requires integration of many live information and continuous updates are also required to be done to take mid course corrections and take decisions of diverting the merchandise from one route to another if such an extreme condition arises. The ultimate aim is to reduce the costs.

    If you want to learn these skills then there are logistics and supply chain management courses being conducted by some reputed agencies/institutions and some of these sources are UPES, CPIM India, NMIMS, disasterready, IISCM, NIMT, KITTS, IIKM etc. Some of them like disasterready (which is a NGO) provide free courses also.

    For your second option that is customer support (non voice) first thing is that you have to keep a keen watch on the job portals and advertisements in other media. If you want some certificate or diploma course in this line for increasing your proficiencies then some agencies like technorsolutions, tucareers, yet5, eskillindia, NQR etc are there to help and guide you. Today various courses are available in online mode and one can quickly learn the skills one is aspiring for in connection with the job of choice.
