Logistics, Warehousing and Transport

All the goods and services that make our modern lives possible, are created, managed and delivered through supply chains. 

Every item you purchase and everything in your house and local community was transported as an item of ‘freight’, organised by ‘logistics’ managers working in networks of national or international ‘supply chain’ companies.   

There are supply chains linked to every industry, including retail, food manufacturing, agriculture and mining.
