Transportation logistics

What is transportation logistics?

Transport logistics covers all logistical processes associated with transportation of any kind. This includes, for example, parts of both procurement and disposal logistics.

Different variables work together here:

  • Administration, for example personnel management
  • Disposition, for example the control of transports
  • Operation, such as certain transportation techniques

In companies, transport logistics is often outsourced to external specialized service providers such as freight forwarders. They then provide the relevant expertise in a cost-effective manner.

What are the objectives of transportation logistics?

The aim of transport logistics is to optimize transports of all kinds in these areas:

  • Loading
  • Utilization
  • Discharge
  • Handover
  • Identification

In addition, costs should be kept to a minimum and goods should be made available in the right quantity at the right time. One example of transport logistics is international container transportation with all the associated logistical tasks such as the actual transport, but also customs clearance, for example. Both the supplier network and the distribution network are considered.
