Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics
When thinking about Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics it makes me think of how important this career cluster is to our economy. In what way do you think the cluster contributes to/effects our nation's economy? Please describe your two careers in this cluster first. How do you think each of your two careers in this cluster contribute to/effect our nation's economy? How does this cluster contribute to/effect the other clusters you have completed research in? My first career was a ship pilot. A ship pilot is someone who drives things such as cargo ships. That helps our economy by delivering goods to our country so we have a higher supply of stuff like food and electronics. If we have a higher supply we have a lower demand which will make prices lower. This is the concept of supply and demand that runs our economy so cargo ship pilots have a high impact on our economy. My second career was an aerospace engineering and operations technician. They operate, install, calibrate, and maintain integrated computer/comm systems, consoles, simulators, and other data acquisition, test, and measurement instruments and, equipment, which are used to launch, track, position, and evaluate air and space vehicles. The people in this career ensure that we can go into space and the sky to learn more about our universe, or travel to other countries. They can also ensure that immigrants can come to our country. The allowance of our president being able to travel safely to a country to talk to the other world leaders is important. He can not do it without aerospace engineering and operations technicians.
