Supply chain logistics is the management of the flow of goods. Supply chain management has been defined as the "design, planning, execution, control, and monitoring of supply chain activities with the objective of creating net value, building a competitive infrastructure, leveraging worldwide logistics, synchronizing supply with demand and measuring performance globally."
Supply chain logistics is the business of moving materials (packages, finished/raw materials, etc.) from source to destination. This could be software, hardware, and people. Hardware would include everything inside a distribution warehouse (conveyor, electrical control systems, forklifts, robotic storage and retrieval machines). Software would include the database management and routing intelligence. The people are the professionals that understand the systems and strategies to maximize efficiencies.
