Logistics management is the part of supply chain management that plans, implements, and controls
the efficient, effective, forward and reverse flow and storage of goods, services, and related information
between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customer's requirements.
Why is it important?
Meeting customer demand and providing superior service
Advanced transportation management systems (TMS) analyze historical data and track real-time movement of goods into and out of a business.
Logistics managers can use this information for process optimization and avoiding potential disruptions.
