Logistics Managers

Logistics managers have to make more strategic decisions and participate in the whole supply chain process.

A logistics manager is responsible for planning, executing, and controlling the supply chain activities, simply carrying out the flow of goods from the point of origin to the end of consumption (including after-sale logistics).

Sourcing Managers

However, a sourcing manager is mainly responsible for procuring or generating materials, parts, equipment, and services an organization needs. They should also take into consideration budget constraints, current market demands, and future trends when making decisions. Therefore, it is a more concentrated and operational role.
