It is difficult to accomplish any marketing or manufacturing without logistical support. It involves the integration of information, transportation, inventory, warehousing, material handling, and packaging. 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. Logistics can be defined as having the right quantity at the right time for the right price. It is the science of process.

Incorporates all industry sectors, and manages the fruition of project life cycles, supply chains and resultant efficiencies. Promptness is of utmost importance, as delayed delivery can result in significant losses to the recipient of the consignment in most cases. The main aim of logistics services is to improve the performance of a company’s warehousing, inventory management and distribution network. Logistics solutions enable the centralization, management and distribution of high-impact, high-value products. Globally, centralized points of distribution enable quicker time to market, resulting in reduced costs and increased market share. Today, logistics operations have become much more complex as companies find it extremely difficult to maintain their competitive advantage purely on the basis of innovative strategies relating to the product, price, place, or promotion.
