Logistics has become one of the vital career fields in Sri Lanka and there is a high demand for logistics professionals in the job market at present as well as in the future. Currently in Sri Lanka more than one million people are working in the field of Logistics and transportation. Those who have higher educational qualifications in the logistics field could work in various organizations as logistics service providers, warehouse managers, procurement managers, demand planning analyst, inventory planners, distribution center managers, logistics managers, operations managers, supply chain consultants, transport managers, technology providers, retailers, factory managers, shipping consultants, and freight forwarders etc... Thus, it is a great challenge for employers in Sri Lanka to recruit people with professional qualifications in logistics. Not only in Sri Lanka, recent report shows the countries such as USA, UK, UAE, Australia and Canada also face problems related to the shortage of staffs in the field of logistics.

Further, Sri Lanka is known as the logistics hub in the South Asian region due to its prime location and proximity to all major ports in the Indian sub-continent. Most of international trade roots connecting Europe, Middle East, East Africa, East Asia, South Asia, India, and Australia are passing down south of Sri Lanka. Hence, logistics plays a vital role in the economic development of Sri Lanka.

Due to the above factors there is a high demand for the Professional Degree Program in the field of Global Logistics Management in Sri Lanka.
