How do I go about getting basic logistics credentials without a four year degree?

I have a bachelors degree in Fine art, and work in the art services field, and want to transition out of an operations type role. I thought this might help further that part of my career course, and possible shift. My current role in operations is as a Master Carpenter/ Fabricator/ Crating Technician.

First decide if you wish to work in the domestic or international markets. If domestic, try and find a shipping clerk position with a trucking company or domestic freight forwarder. If you prefer international logistics, it is a little more challenging, but there are many open import or export customer service positions available with international freight forwarders. There are also opportunities are with domestic truck brokers, however these are mainly sales position. Your knowledge of crate building will be very helpful in any role. It is a very exciting industry and you learn very quickly if willing.
