Abstract The question of logistics skills is important for management, career development, and education. Existing models of logistics skills have, however, not yet been tested or has their effect on logistics performance been evaluated. This study fills this gap by testing the T-shaped model of logistics skills in the light of logistics performance. Special attention is paid to the respondent group of humanitarian logisticians. The article concludes that the T-shaped model of logistics skills is applicable in both the general as well as the humanitarian logistics setting. The gendered nature of these skills reveals the significance of some male skills that can create an entry barrier to women in logistics.
