Logistic

Logistics is the management of the flow of resources between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to

meet some requirements, for example, of customers or corporations. The resources managed in logistics can include

physical items, such as food, materials, equipment, liquids, and staff, as well as abstract items, such as time, information,

particles, and energy. The logistics of physical items usually involves the integration of information flow, material handling,

production, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing, and often security. The complexity of logistics can be

modeled, analyzed, visualized, and optimized by dedicated simulation software. The minimization of the use of resources is

a common motivation in logistics for import and export.

 

Origins and definition

The prevalent view is that term logistics comes from the late 19th century: from French logistique (loger means to lodge).

Others attribute a Greek origin to the word: meaning reason or speech; meaning accountant or responsible for counting.
