What is logistics?
In a general business sense, logistics can be defined as the detailed planning, organization, and
implementation of a complex operation.
Logistics is a key and critical element of a company’s supply chain. Logistics is responsible, inside this supply chain, for the management and optimization of the transport, storage, and distribution of raw material, components, goods, people, supplies, semi-finished or finished products.
Working in this field means being involved in the organization, execution and monitoring of the movement, storage and distribution of goods. It will also mean using supporting resources, such as people, providers, equipment and technology.
