Logistics Flow Charts

Currently, the use of marketing approaches is not enough for business success; the use of modern highly effective methods and methods for managing stream processes, for example, logistics, is also required. Logistics coordinates all the structures of the enterprise and is of great importance for customers, suppliers of the company, its owners and shareholders. The goal of logistics is the most rational promotion of goods and services from a supplier to an end user. It is aimed at optimizing costs, streamlining production processes, marketing, and related services within a single enterprise or group of enterprises, as well as strategic management of financial and information flows. Logistics is a complex process, representing a single chain of inter-related actions: from marketing and receipt of an order for production, storage, and transportation.

Logistics is a kind of philosophy of a successful business and at the same time the art of meeting the needs and desires of both consumers and suppliers. The supplier’s goal is to minimize costs and maximize profits, and the client’s goal is to receive a good quality product or service, at a reasonable price on time and with top-level service. Using logistics helps to optimize all processes in the enterprise, accelerate a turnover of working capital, reduce all types of product inventories during production, delivery and sale, reduce production costs, ensure complete customer satisfaction with the quality of goods and services.
