A key cross-functional part of the management of a company’s goods and information flows, logistics has taken on a very important role particularly linked to the economic aspects of meeting demand. The development of “just in time” delivery, efforts to delocalize and reducing response time to meeting demand are a few examples of logistics tasks in the context of corporate strategy.
Logistics and supply-chain management are key elements in a company’s competitiveness. On a variety of scales, logisticians and supply chain managers are taking on new decision-making profiles, both in terms of strategy and operations, and they need a global vision and sense of leadership to succeed. Their jobs are no longer limited to reducing costs but have now expanded to encompass value creation and innovation in an ever-widening field of operations.
