Pathway Descriptions

Facility and Mobile Equipment Maintenance workers are involved in the maintenance, repair, and servicing of vehicles and transportation facilities, and the refueling of mobile equipment. The people in this pathway keep the equipment and machinery running while looking for more efficient, safe, and cost-effective ways to do so.

Health, safety, and Environmental Management workers are involved in assessing and managing risks associated with safety and environmental issues. The people employed in this pathway research, plan, and carry out activities to make our environment safer and cleaner.

Logistics Planning and Management Services workers are involved in the planning, management, and control of the physical distribution of materials, products, and people.

Sales and Services workers are involved in the marketing and selling of transportation services to new customers as well as the management of existing customer relationships and customer service.

Transportation Operations workers drive or pilot the vehicles that transport people and freight.

Transportation/Systems Infrastructure Planning, Management, and Regulation workers deal with all aspects of the design and operation of our public transportation systems – road, air, sea, and rail. These functions are primarily the responsibility of people who are employed by federal, state, and local transportation agencies.

Warehousing and Distribution Center Operations workers focus on the operation of transportation and distribution facilities including ports, terminals, warehouses, and other types of facilities. All cargo needs to be tracked, sorted, labeled, and loaded accurately and safely. Timing is also important, since many loads must adhere to a schedule in order to satisfy the needs of the customer.

Students preparing for a career in the Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics Career Cluster have a variety of postsecondary options. Education and training can be obtained through on-the-job training, technical colleges, two-year community colleges, four-year colleges/universities, and apprenticeship programs. They can enter programs leading to a certificate or a degree at the associate, baccalaureate, or advanced degree level.
