What Logistics Truly Is

Often when people think of logistics, they either aren’t exactly sure what it means or they associate it with packing goods and driving trucks.

While freight is a huge part of the logistics industry, there is much more to it than simple pack and deliver.

As we’ve discussed before, logistics has a rich history stemming back thousands of years with Alexander the Great being considered the greatest logistics genius of all time. Ultimately, logistics covers all aspects of the movement of a product from its origins to its destination.

We ensure efficiency, track data and information, and aim to achieve all tasks in the most cost effective manner possible. So we handle:

  • Planning, management and control of goods and services
  • Information
  • Management of data in real time
  • Management of human resources
  • Cost management
  • The arrival of products within the allocated parameters

Achieving this requires efficient practices across the board, coordination and constant monitoring of our services to be certain that whatever products need to be moved from point A to point B is done with the goods and our drivers intact as well as at low costs.

Ultimately, logistics is as much about strategising and planning as it is about the freight deliveries themselves. It’s not just a place for truckies but also for those who like to be a part of one of the most significant caterers to the ever-growing organism of supply and demand.

Here at Cannon Logistics, we pride ourselves with our work and providing our customers with the most cost effective – and efficient – service possible. If you would like to know more contact us online or call us on (07) 3396 8833.
