Logistics and Supply Chain Management: Introduction


The field of business logistics is critical to the economy.  In 2012, about $836 billion was spent in the United States on transportation out of approximately $1.3 trillion spent on logistics that year (almost 63% of the total).1

This guide will help you find information about all aspects of logistics and supply chain management.
