Salary Growth in Logistics: Antal Report Points the Way
Analyzing Antal's salary reports from the 2020 edition to this year's edition published in July 2023, it is clear that the average salary in the logistics industry is increasing. Although the difference between the previous year and the current one is 153 PLN, the smallest growth in the analyzed period, the upward trend persists.
The most significant salary increase in the logistics industry was observed between 2021 and 2022. Logistics spread its wings during the COVID-19 pandemic, and salaries in that period even rose by 18%. Since then, the situation in the industry has stabilized and remained at a similar level, with salaries differing only slightly after minor inflation adjustments – comments Roman Zabłocki, Business Unit Director at Antal, Engineering & Operations.

Most Desirable Benefits in the Logistics Industry
The logistics industry plays a crucial role in the global supply chain and has significant importance for the efficient functioning of various sectors of the economy. Standard benefits offered to attract potential employees to this industry consistently include bonuses and performance-related incentives, along with competitive compensation. However, due to economic slowdown and financial constraints, employers' financial possibilities are limited.
In the logistics industry, we observe a rise in salaries, although it is significantly slowed. Due to increasing production costs, employers' budgets are constrained, preventing further salary increases – comments Agnieszka Grzegorczyk, Team Leader at Antal, Engineering & Operations.
In light of the deceleration in salary growth, companies aim to retain employees by offering attractive non-monetary benefits or achievement-based bonuses. According to the Antal report, the most desirable benefits for employees include relocation packages, flexible hours, hybrid work models, and opportunities for training and professional development.
Diversity of projects and globalization also significantly impact the job market. High levels of outsourcing lead companies to focus on large-scale projects concentrated on volume rather than specific industries – adds Agnieszka Grzegorczyk, Team Leader, Engineering & Operations.
