Abstract

The transport and logistics industry is considered a fast-growing industry in the word because of the rapid development of the international trade. However, competent professionals in this field is scarce. Therefore, educational institutions are engaged in developing more professionals in the industry. This study mainly focuses on three objectives namely, to identify the sectors in which logisticians are demanded, to identify the level of employers’ satisfaction in the industry, and finally to differentiate the performances between various categories. The study has used descriptive analysis and One-Way ANOVA in the analysis. According to the findings it could be concluded that graduate logisticians are engaged in varied industry sectors and their employers are satisfied with the quality standards and the skill levels of the graduate students. Also, the study reveals a performance gap in the gender analysis. It was noted that there were three types of performance gaps between industries.
