Distribution logistics

What is distribution logistics?

Distribution logistics, also known as sales logistics, comprises various transport operations of products, regardless of whether they are storage or handling operations. The result is a stringing together of processes and tasks between producers and consumers.

Distribution logistics is divided into three task areas:

  • Strategic tasks
  • Tactical tasks
  • Operational tasks

The idea behind this is to minimize the costs of transport and storage as much as possible. In addition, a higher level of influence and availability is to be achieved.
