Overview

Logistics is a specialist skill organizing shipments of raw supplies or finished goods from the supplier or manufacturer to the point of distribution or final market place.

A master logistician will use a variety of shipping methods including ships, airplanes, trucks, and rail to ensure that delivery is made in the quickest and cheapest way possible.

The logistics industry works internationally organizing the movement of goods between countries. They need to know each country’s export and import regulations as well as the details of waybills, licences, insurance, and other essential documents.
