Logistics is the complex process that is required to move items (anything and everything, including people) from their starting point to their destination. It is not a single action but a collection of many different processes, including integrating information, material handling and flow, procurement, inventory management, packaging, transportation, warehousing, security and receipt of goods.
Effective supply chain management requires an organised, well managed logistics operation to ensure parts, products and services move from suppliers through the supply chain to the end user on time and in good condition. The aim of a logistics operation is to provide better efficiency, reduce operation costs and promote service quality.
With such importance placed on successful logistics operations within the supply chain, at The Institute of Supply Chain Management (IoSCM) we offer a range of professional qualifications in logistics and transport, each carefully designed to match modern businesses’ needs and upskill professionals at all stages of their logistics careers.
