Airports, shipyards, warehouses, and trucking terminals all employ cargo and freight agents. These professionals are in charge of figuring out the logistics of moving a shipment of raw materials or finished goods from point A (usually the supplier) to point B (usually the purchaser). Though the position does not require a college degree, those looking to land a leadership role in the industry may want to take business classes.
