Logistics now refers to procedures that range from the procurement of raw materials to the delivery of end-products to consumers, and includes the planning process, implementation, and integration. In other words, it covers everything from the planning of production, to packaging and packing, transportation, inventory management, processing of purchase orders, and information management throughout the entire supply chain, with the aim of making products available to consumers rapidly, economically, and reliably.
To participate successfully in international markets, export firms must ensure that they deliver the correct order, comply with agreed to specifications and quality, and deliver their products on time.
