What was the last item you purchased? Did you ever think of how it arrived in the shop? Regardless of what you purchased, logistics and the management of supply chains is what got that item to the shop. Logistics and the management of supply chains is a very diverse sector. It is the invisible glue that keeps economies and society functioning and ensures that products get to where they need to be at the right time in the right condition and at the right price. We generally don't think about this invisible glue until there is a problem: remember the chaos caused by the snow in 2018?
