Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LSCM) involves the coordination of purchasing, manufacturing, storage, and transportation of goods around the world. Check out the tag on your shirt. Bet it wasn’t made in America, was it? Wherever it was made, even if it was America, someone had to manufacture the shirt, purchase it from the manufacturer, determine how much to purchase so there’s not too much or too few of them to sell, store the product after its purchased, and transport it from the manufacturer through every stage in the supply chain until it reaches the shelf where you purchased it or arrives at your front door. Logistics and supply chain literally moves the world; every product to every place imaginable.
