Non Economic Problems Involved with Logistics

Economic Problems Involved with Logistics




My personal field of interest is logistics. The Canadian Logistics Industry defines logistics as,”…the process of planning, implementing and controlling the flow and storage of goods and services and related information from the point of origin to the point of consumption.”  This can include things like accumulating and managing supplies, warehousing, transportation, finance, human resource management, and more.

Logistics is absolutely necessary for any business or operation to succeed. Logistics is also vital for military purposes. This report will show some examples of how logistics is directly related with economics. Almost everything involved in logistics has some economic aspects included in it.
