Organisation of logistics is one of the most important steps that an enterprise has to consider. This involves activities that concern the process of planning, implementation, and controlling the efficient, effective flow and storage of goods, services and related information from the point of origin to the point of consumption, and perhaps to its ultimate point of disposal as well.
Arranging logistics involves selecting a mode of transport (e.g., air, rail, water, truck, or pipeline), the routing of the shipment, compliance with regulations in the region of the country where your product is being transported, and selection of the carrier. This is frequently the largest single cost among logistics activities.
