Logistics means having the right thing, at the right place; at the right time, the procurement, maintenance, distribution, and replacement of personnel and materiel. It is also defined as a business planning framework for the management of material, service, information and capital flows. It includes the increasingly complex information, communication and control systems required in today's business environment.

A supply chain is the flow of goods, information and finance. It typically starts by sourcing raw materials or semi-finished goods, which are scheduled and transported into factories to be made into finished products (see Diagram 1.0). These then pass through warehouses or distribution centres and are delivered to retailers, wholesalers or direct to consumers' homes or business premises. Finally, aftermarket activities involve the maintenance and repair, or the return and recycling, of products at the end of their life. Supply chain planning optimises overall flows and inventories, by balancing resources with demand at all stages.
Customers have increasing demands for transportation performance, higher on-time delivery performance, and reduced damage-in-transit. They expect transportation providers to be flexible and quickly adapt to order changes. Add to all of this an increased need for global freight visibility and control, and companies are scrambling to find the right solution to quickly address these challenges
