- Logistics is everywhere. You buy from your local grocery store, you have orders delivered from Amazon, you see delivery trucks just about everywhere you go. It's an important part of the world economy and a critical component for company success. And understanding logistics is important for your success within the company, because logistics is all about giving your customer what they want when they want it. I'm Steven Brown, and I've taught logistics in supply chain practices and corporate training sessions in university classrooms for many years. In this course I'll teach you the fundamental principles of logistics. I'll start by helping you understand why logistics is so important to business success. I'll then share about the different types of logistics, and the processes that make up an effective logistics system. I'll also show you how these processes integrate with other business strategies. Becoming a logistics professional is all about knowing how these principles, processes and strategies work together to make your company a success. So if you're ready, let's get started.
