Work With Us

Logistics Bureau is a tight-knit team that shares a passion for helping people.

We pride ourselves on a personal approach. And we don’t just extend that to our customers. Our structure provides a flexible environment that considers the needs of our consultants and support staff.

Our clients appreciate the way they always deal with the same consultant. We never send in the big guns to do the pitch only to pass the work on to juniors. Our experienced team of professionals is our strength and each of us is in the business of growing customers for life.

It’s fair to say that it takes a certain kind of person to fit in with the Logistics Bureau team. Each of us thrives in an environment of constant challenge, and sometimes long hours and tight deadlines. Ideally, our professional staff have post-graduate qualifications to complement broad logistics and supply chain experience. We are lateral thinkers with an insight into wider business issues and a thirst for variety and complexity in our work.

We sometimes have vacancies in Australia (Sydney, Perth and Melbourne) and SE Asia (Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok) for the right person.
