Logistics Technology

You probably know what logistics technology is, just not by its name. Logistics technology involves managing the movement and storage of materials and finished goods through the supply chain to the consumer — critical processes in today’s economy. When you shop online, logistics professionals get your order in your hands.
 
The world of logistics includes transportation by plane, train, truck and rail; globalization; supply chain management; and new computer-based tracking technologies.

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce and Bureau of Labor Statistics, material handling and logistics is one of America's largest and fastest growing industries, accounting for more than $156 billion annual expenditures on equipment, information technology, goods and services, and employing more than 700,000 workers.
