Know the Logistics Industry

Logistics is the art and science of managing and controlling the flow of goods, energy, information and other resources from the source of production to the marketplace. Logistics is concerned with strategically managing the supply chain so that the right goods get to the right place, in the right quantity, at the right time, in the best condition & at an acceptable cost. It is a practical discipline, concerned with planning and management, and is very much focused on getting things done. The prime focus of all business organizations today is the management of their supply chains.

A product’s supply chain typically includes input from the manufacturer, distributor, retailer, consumer, and supplier. Transport, on the other hand, serves as the link between all of these stages.
