Maine Pointe's Perspective on the evolution of logistics

tvo-logistics-small.pngOver the years, logistics management has evolved from the basic movement and storage of materials and products to that of a logistics operation that is more dependent on relationships upstream and downstream in the supply chain.

As market dynamics shift and pressures increase on margins, market share and competitiveness, even organizations with significant logistics capabilities are discovering the need to rapidly evolve. Today the imperative is for unprecedented integration and synchronization across the buy-make-move-fulfill supply chain to deliver the greatest value to customers at the lowest cost to business.

Companies striving to protect margins and maintain a competitive edge need to move up the Logistics Maturity Curve towards Total Value Optimization™.
