Distribution logistics, also known as sales logistics, deals with the planning, realisation and control of the movement of goods. It is an inter-organisational logistics system, where the aim is to make the logistics channel from the supplier to the customer efficient – especially in terms of costs and performance.
As the link between production and sales of a company, distribution logistics includes all storage, handling and transport processes of goods from production to the customer. In concrete terms, distribution logistics deals with the processes necessary to get a company’s products to the customer as quickly as possible. To this end, distribution logistics is divided into strategic, tactical and operational tasks.
