Abstract The aim of this research is to identify the skills required by logistics and supply chain managers in China, their relative importance, and the key knowledge areas that require improvement. Using a survey questionnaire, data was collected against forty five logistics management skills, which were then grouped and analysed. The analysis revealed that inventory management, supply chain awareness, cross-functional awareness, customer service, and supply chain cost are considered the top five skills for effective and efficient functioning.
