Logistics - is the art and science of managing and controlling the flow of
goods, energy, information and other resources like products, services, and
people, from the source of production to the marketplace.

Logistics can be defined as having the right quantity at the right time for
the right price.
It is the science of process and incorporates all industry sectors.

In military science, maintaining one's supply lines while disrupting those of the enemy is a crucial—
some would say the most crucial—element of military strategy, since an armed force without food,
fuel and ammunition is defenseless.

The Iraq war was a dramatic example of the importance of logistics. It had become very necessary
for the US and its allies to move huge amounts of men, materials and equipment over great
distances.

The defeat of the British in the American War of Independence, and the defeat of Rommel in
World War II, have been largely attributed to logistical failure.

The historical leaders Hannibal Barca and Alexander the Great are considered to have been logistical
geniuses.
