Logistics is about continuously ensuring the transport, handling, warehousing, supply, procurement and allocation of goods, people, money, information and energy. This requires managing, monitoring and optimising all related processes and tasks. In addition to reducing the cost of logistics activities, the goals are, in particular, to further improve the flexibility of logistics systems and to make adaptations and changes to the existing environment.
In times of an ever-increasing division of labour, digitisation and internationalisation, complex big-picture thinking is required to be successful in logistics. The implementation of logistics systems is a great challenge both for companies within the value chain and for providers of logistics services.
