This unit provides you with a broad appreciation of the nature and importance of logistics activities and introduces you to some of the concepts, tools and thinking used in logistics by logistics managers. It enables you to understand the key components of an integrated logistics system, such as procurement, inventory management and transport, whilst viewing the system synergistically. Central to an integrated logistics system is the customer: by studying the trade-offs between customer service and costs in this unit, you will be able to contribute positively to the logistics management activities in any company.
