Walk through local retail stores, and you’ll find apples grown in Michigan, water heaters built in Kentucky, T-shirts sewn in Honduras, and microwave ovens assembled in China. It isn’t magic that brings products from around the world to central Florida each day, but a coordinated behind-the-scenes industry known as logistics.
Logistics deals with the activities that are performed within a single company to deliver goods from the point of origin to a consumer who may be many thousands of miles away. These activities include transportation, packaging, routing, distributing, and warehousing. On a small scale, logistics workers place orders, coordinate delivers, and keep warehouses stocked and organized. On a large scale, logisticians manage the flow of goods in ways that meet consumer demand and maximize a company’s profits.
