Logistics, distribution and materials management, which deals primarily with the flow of goods or services among members of the supply chain, including suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and the customers themselves, is an important branch of business. Without this field, businesses would have no means of getting their products to customers efficiently. Perhaps it is no surprise, then, that businesses may be willing to invest quite a deal of money into such operations.
