Logistics Management 101: A Beginner’s Guide

Logistics management is a detailed process of organizing and implementing an operation. It focuses on inventory management, purchasing, transportation, warehousing, consultation and the organization and mapping of these processes. There are four main types of logistics management: supply management and logistics, production logistics and management, and reverse logistics and product return. Distribution and material movement involves moving stored materials and transporting them to where they need to go. Production logistics and management involves combining distributed supplies into a product, staging materials at the right time to work with the building of a product, and managing the movement of supplies from a central warehouse to the stores that sell the product.

Reverse Logistics and Product Return involves reclaiming materials and supplies from production. When project components change, they can impact the scope of the project, cost, time, or schedule, and even the quality of the project.
