Business Central Logistics
What is logistics management?
In companies, logistics is a general term for internal processes as well as for the entire supply chain, from the original supplier to the final customer. The processes of logistics management include areas such as strategic management and controlling of purchasing, transport and storage of goods, as well as the processes associated with it.
By achieving efficient administration of the company's logistics and associated processes, and thus managing procurement and inventory in conjunction with order processing, you also gain full control over expenses and profits, and will be able to deliver the right product to the right customer and at the agreed time. That way, with efficient logistics management, you can maximize your company's future profits through cost-effective delivery of incoming orders.
