Corporate logistics

What is corporate logistics?

Corporate logistics includes all activities to optimize the flow of materials and information from the supplier to the end customer. This includes planning, organizing, processing, monitoring and controlling the flow of goods and information to the customer. In the classic sense, original logistics is purely merchandise management, but modern corporate logistics has much more to offer:

  • Procurement logistics
  • Production logistics
  • Distribution logistics
  • Disposal logistics
  • Information logistics
  • Warehouse logistics
  • Transportation logistics

Warehousing is a relevant topic in corporate logistics, because once goods have been stored in the warehouse, they must be retrievable at all times. Especially with a number of constantly changing products, it is difficult to maintain a clear overview at all times. Suitable warehouse management software is therefore indispensable in today's warehousing.
