What is logistics?
The term may not be familiar to you, but the function is something from which you benefit every day. Logistics is the term describing the various functions related to the movement of an item, from the place where it was made or grown, to the place where it is used or consumed.
Logistics is described as the universal thread or “pipeline” that plans and coordinates the delivery of products and services to customers all over the world. Logistics professionals manage and coordinate activities in this global pipeline, to ensure an effective and efficient flow of materials and information from the time a need arises until it is satisfied and beyond.
