The logistics activities have been gaining more significance than ever owing to the strategic geographical position of our country and the globalizing world. Today, companies aim to improve customer satisfaction by supplying the product in the shortest period of time possible and improve their cash flows and profitability through the application of appropriate logistics processes instead of decreasing the production costs incurred during manufacturing.

In today’s world, where globalization along with the fast improvement in the field of information technologies lead to intensely growing sense of competition, the notions of “consumer satisfaction” and “consumer focused management” have prevailed the whole business arena. Consumers are not satisfied with the “basic product” which provides solely the main functions, but they expect more and demand the product to be offered with vitally significant trio of “highest quality, lowest cost, the fastest delivery”. “Logistics” comprises one of the main factors of this trio in meeting the needs of these tripartite demands. The term “logistics” has been defined as “part of supply chain management that plans, implements, and controls the efficient, effective forward and reverses flow and storage of goods, services and related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customers’ requirements”.
