When we think of shipping and logistics the most common image that comes to mind for the average consumer is the US Postal Service, UPS or FedEx to deliver our freshly baked Christmas cookies to our great aunt in Somewhere, Idaho. Or, perhaps for the same great aunt to deliver to us a crocheted afghan for our birthday, for the 10th year in a row. We sure do have gratitude for shipping options. For businesses, shipping and logistics takes on a much larger scale vision as they manage of the flow of resources between the point of origin and the point of destination. The resources managed in logistics can include physical items, such as food, materials, equipment, liquids or staff. The logistics of physical items generally involves material handling, production, packaging, inventory, transportation and warehousing. Businesses that provide services in these categories often enlist complicated software solutions designed to address the complexity of logistics so these exercises can be modeled, analyzed, visualized, and optimized by these planning and simulation softwares. The minimization of the use of resources and time are common motives and means by which costs are maintained.
