Logistics specialists are concerned with making sure goods are delivered safely, efficiently, and on time on a consistent basis. It may sound simple enough, but in the business world, logistics is actually a complex process that requires a broad range of skills and abilities to coordinate and time a highly detailed chain of events. Logisticians evaluate, plan and coordinate a company’s entire supply chain, overseeing a product’s life cycle from acquisition through distribution and delivery.
