Logistics is one of the most dynamic sectors of our economy. It is central to many business operations—to ship products to end-buyers, organize regular supply of raw and finished materials, and provide long-distance forwarding and dispatch services. It is local, regional, national, and international—sometimes all at the same time. But we can also look at transportation logistics in a broader sense, as moving people as well as goods safely, efficiently, and in a variety of modes and a variety of circumstances.
