Logistics management is the process of dealing with the whole order from start to finish.
A logistics manager responsibility is to ensure all stock is stored and distributed correctly.
When a business looks at the logistical management of inventory, they need to consider many different aspects.
The business will need to decide on the best way to transport goods eg:
Understanding and organising the most effective channel of distribution e.g. manufacturer to retailer to customer is important to a business's efficiency and profit.
Logistics need to consider external factors that may affect the movement and storage of inventory.
Legislations can influence the delivery of goods. For example, the amount of times lorry drivers are allowed to drive without having a break is stipulated by legislation, this will affect delivery times
The budget that a business has for storage and delivery of inventory can affect the choices that are made by the logistics manager
