Average compensation for supply-chain professionals, including bonuses, was $117,425 last year.

According to the Institute for Supply Management, compensation for supply-chain professionals rose 4.1% in 2017, outpacing broader U.S. wage gains for professionals last year as the costs for making and moving goods increased.

As rising increased fuel and transportation expenses have been carving into their profit margins, companies are ready to pay more for supply-chain skills of planners and transportation managers who can help offset growing freight and raw materials costs.
