"Logistics means having the right thing, at the right place, at the right time." Logistics is a relatively new word used to describe very old practices like the planning, implementing, and controlling the efficient, effective flow and storage of goods, services, and related information from point of origin to point of consumption for the purpose of conforming to customer requirements. Logistics refers to the entire process of transferring products from producer to consumer, including storage, transport, transshipment, warehousing, material-handling and packaging, with associated exchange of information.
It is difficult or nearly impossible to accomplish any international trading, global export/import processes, international repositioning of raw materials/products and manufacturing without a professional logistical support. The operating responsibility of logistics is the geographical repositioning of raw materials, work in process and finished inventories where required at the lowest cost possible.
On the other hand transportation is the movement of people and goods from one location to another. Transport is performed by various modes, such as air, rail, road, water, cable, pipeline and space. The field can be divided into infrastructure, vehicles and operations.
With increased specialization and globalization, production is being located further away from consumption, rapidly increasing the demand for transport. In this increasingly competitive global business environment, the quality of logistics and transport operations and their costs and supply chain management capability can make the difference between the success and failure of business ventures.
