Logistics & Distribution Training Program
Principles of Logistics & Distribution Management
In his best-selling book, “The world is Flat”, Thomas Friedman, a staff writer for “The New York Times”, discusses 10 major forces that have helped to “flatten” the world from an economic prospective. One of the 10 forces is what he describes as supply chaining, a method of collaborating among businesses to manage the flow of goods, information and cash to deliver “value” to customer.
This type of collaboration has stretched vertically and horizontally on a global basis to become a cornerstone of competitive strategy for successful organisations in today’s global market place.
The key components of Logistics have been an important feature of industrial and economic life for countless years. But only in the recent past that Logistics has been recognised as a major function in its own right.
In today’s world, logistics & distribution are necessary cornerstones of competitive starter, increased market share and shareholder value for most of the organisations
What managers are experiencing today, we choose to describe as the “Supply Chain Revolution” and a related “Logistical renaissance”. These massive shifts in expectation and practice concerning best practice performance of business operations are highly interrelated.
Within a firm’s Supply Chain Management”, Logistics is the work required to move and geographically position inventory. Logistics & Distribution is a process that creates value by timing and positioning inventory. It is a combination of firm’s order management, inventory, transportation, warehousing, material handling and packaging as integrated throughout a facility network
While the purpose of logistical work has remined essentially the same over the decades, the way the work is performed continues to radically change. Acknowledged dependence between business firms created distribution channels
