What is Logistics

8 03 2010


  • The term “logistics” originates from the ancient Greek (“logos”—”ratio, word, calculation, reason, speech, oration”)


  • “The branch of military science having to do with procuring, maintaining and transporting material, personnel and facilities.”
  • “The time-related positioning of resources.” As such, logistics is commonly seen as a branch of engineering which creates “people systems” rather than”machine systems.”

→ Logistics is a proccess to ensure that a right item is delivered in the right quantity at the right time at the right place for the right price in the right condition to the right customer.
