Logistics and Economics

Logistics involves a lot more than the transportation and storage of goods. Sales, purchasing, marketing, administration, communication, automation, production and transport are all very closely intertwined. It is the job of the logistics manager to seamlessly coordinate all these processes. Most of the time this is a complicated task as a change in one area has automatic repercussions on others. So, the logistics manager will always have to weigh up the advantages of a solution against the knock-on effects in the chain.
