Why is Logistics Management Important? In the military, the term ''logistics'' refer to the process of getting and delivering equipment and supplies to troops.

In the military, the term 'logistics' refer to the process of getting and delivering equipment and supplies to troops. Because of the increasing complexity of supplying businesses with materials and shipping out products in the 1950s, logistics has evolved as a business concept. Today, this term is described by the business sector as the efficient flow and storage of goods from point of origin to the point of consumption.

Logistics has now become a vital part of supply chain management that is utilised to plan, implement and control the flow and storage of goods and services in order to meet customer’s requirements.
