Transportation and logistics: How similar are they?
Transportation and logistics are often synonymously and interchangeably used.
However, these two are completely different set of services. Transportation mostly concerns the movement of goods through air, water or roadways. The process usually involves the transit of goods from the manufacturer to the end-user. Logistics on the other hand refers to the overall process of dealing, packing, documenting, storing and insuring of goods. It is a multi-stepped complex procedure in the supply chain. Loading and unloading of goods in many cases are often considered to be an essential part of logistics. Careful handling of fragile goods requires specialized dealing. It is a vast concept that has many interconnected utilities and management practices. Renowned business management writer Tom Peters have rightfully remarked “Leaders win through logistics”.
