What is Logistics and Supply Chain Management

What is logistics in supply chain management? Logistics refers to the set of processes by which materials or goods of any kind are both stored and distributed to their respective recipients. From the initial sourcing of materials right through the final sale to the customer, logistics is all about getting items from their point of origin to their final destination. Logistical requirements in a business setting can be anything from self-contained and simple to exceptionally complex. Nevertheless, it’s the way in which logistics are managed that will determine the overall efficiency and effectiveness of all key supply chain activities.
