Importance of Logistics Management: An organization with an efficient logistics system in place ensures availability of raw materials at the right time/place so as to avoid manufacturing delays, helps all processes to progress smoothly, ensures storage that reduces obsolescence and gets the end product to the customer responsively.
Reverse Logistics: It includes all functions that are used to return goods and materials from final destination in the supply chain to the origin so as to be reused, recycled, repaired or remanufactured.

Logistics course is not a new concept. It was initially used in the military for maintenance, storage and transportation of army persons and goods strategically to incur minimum setbacks and bring victory. With the advent of SCM, logistics was found to supplement it and has now become an inseparable part of SCM. As specialization has gained importance, logistics has moved on from basic models of 1PL and 2PL (1st and 2nd Party Logistics-handles transportation by themselves or by a provider) to 3PL(3rd Party Logistics provider can handle various logistical activities for the client organization) and 4PL (4th Party Logistics provider gives SC solution to clients); with advanced configurations on offer.
