Logistics is the complex science of getting what is needed, where it is needed, when it is needed. In an age when the products we use are more likely to be from around the world than around the block, logistics is the behind the scenes magic that makes the modern world possible. Men and women in the logistics industry transport goods in warehouses, track the progress of shipments across the globe, handle crucial materials, ensure orders are filled and packages are shipped, and drive the trucks and forklifts that support the American economy. Not surprisingly, logistics is one of America’s fastest growing industries.
