Logistics & Transportation
Logistics and transportation are two very important parts of transportation and distribution services, and they are different. Transportation is the movement of goods and logistics is the management of the inward and outward transportation of goods from the manufacturer to the end user. Logistics is obtaining, producing, and distributing materials and products in the right qualities and to an end user. Logistics includes the science of planning for managing and implementing procedures for the most efficient and effective storage and transportation of goods and services. Services and other information from the source point to the consumer is sent through logistics channels to meet and fulfill customer needs. Transportation services include the movement of goods and services, people, and animals from one location to another by rail, road, air, sea, cable, space, or pipeline. Transportation services can be divided into three different areas: infrastructure, vehicles, and operations. Transportation allows communication and trade between the two parties.
