  • Central logistical activities (transports, warehousing, materials handling) and processes (supply, distribution).
  • Logistics impact on profitability, by means of:
    • Costs - from a holistic perspective.
    • Delivery service - affecting the revenues.
    • Capital - reduced need by suitable logistical solutions.
