More logistics professionals are seeking to relocate to the Middle East amidst economic turmoil in Europe, according to the recently released Logistics Executive's Supply Chain & Logistics 2012-2013 Employment Market Survey Report.

The report revealed that despite the reduction of expatriate packages in recent years, the region remained attractive to global candidates.

Kim Winter, CEO of Logistics Executive, wrote in the summary at the start of the report: “Although some of the regions where most of our survey respondents are employed experienced some slowing in rates of economic growth, underlying strength across key industries in these regions, Middle East/Africa (Oil/Gas/Resources), Asia (Manufacturing/Retailing), Australia (Resources/Agriculture) remains comparatively firm, and this has maintained upward pressure on wages and salaries across most supply chain and logistics roles.

“This year 31.10% of respondents indicated they received pay increases of more than 10%, a significant drop compared to the 40.97% in the previous survey. 44.10% of those surveyed are expecting salary increases of 10% or more in the year ahead, by comparison to 51.87% last year, who expected an increase of more than 10% this year.”
