Transportation and Logistics
Transportation and Logistics are closely related processes. Logistics is the management of the flow of goods, information and other resources between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet the requirements of consumers (frequently and originally, military organizations). Logistics involves the integration of information, transportation, inventory, warehousing, material-handling, and packaging and occasionally security. It is a channel of the supply chain which adds the value of time and place utility. Today the complexity of production logistics can be modeled, analyzed, visualized and optimized with the incorporation of SCADA systems.
