Logistics and the supply chain are common terms that define distinct businesses that make the product available to the end customer. They are sometimes misunderstood and can lead to misinterpretation. Discover the difference between logistics and supply chain.
For ASLOG, logistics is “the art and the way to make a given product available at the right time, in the right place, at the lowest cost and with the best quality“.
In other words, logistics consists of managing physical flows such as products in a warehouse, using IT tools, methods and processes to optimize these flows.
This activity consists of receiving, storing, preparing and shipping the products, all in the shortest time and conditions.
Beware of the English translation “logistics” which represents the logistics and transport unlike the English term.
The supply chain represents the supply chain and / or supply chain management that goes from the supplier to the end customer (from the raw material to the finished product).
The supply chain is often related to logistics and therefore the warehouse. But it actually includes different trades such as logistics, transport and IT and is therefore piloting tools. These are the different links in the chain.
The transport can intervene within the framework of the organization of the national or international logistics. This is a complex business that has a strong importance in the sales process. We must be able to offer various services that meet all the needs of customers whether B2B or B2C.
