The rise of eCommerce is an inexorable one, with real-world ripple effects that extend all the way to feet and wheels on the street  and, by extension, burgeoning payrolls. To that end, hiring within the logistics sector has gained ground, even beyond the holiday season. This has given rise to the structural shift in the job market, as Amazon and other firms strive to meet the growing demands of one-day and even same-day delivery. In terms of headline numbers, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said at the end of last week that January saw the 11th straight month of gains within consumer and messenger jobs, with the latest month showing 14,300 new jobs added.
