What is Logistics?

Logistics is the management of the flow of goods, information and
other resources, including energy and people, between the point of
origin and the point of consumption in order to meet the requirements
of consumers (frequently, and originally, military organizations).
Logistics involves the integration of information, transportation,
inventory, warehousing, material-handling, and packaging, and
occasionally security. Logistics is a channel of the supply chain which
adds the value of time and place utility. Today the complexity of
production logistics can be modeled, analyzed, visualized and
optimized by plant simulation software.

What is Logistics Management?

Logistics management is that part of the supply chain which plans,

implements and controls the efficient, effective forward and reverse
flow and storage of goods, services and related information between
the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet
customer & legal requirements.

Logistics management is the governance of supply chain functions.

Logistics management activities typically include inbound and
outbound transportation management, fleet management,
warehousing, materials handling, order fulfillment, logistics network
design, inventory management, supply/demand planning, and
management of third party logistics services providers. To varying
degrees, the logistics function also includes customer service, sourcing
and procurement, production planning and scheduling, packaging and
assembly. Logistics management is part of all levels of planning and
execution -- strategic, operational and tactical. It is an integrating
function, which coordinates all logistics activities, as well as integrates
logistics activities with other functions including marketing, sales
manufacturing, finance, and information technology.

Location Analysis:

The location is related to the availability of industry / products in a
region and their movements. We basically keep five parameters in
mind while selecting a location. First is cargo, second is near to actual
consumption, third is proximity to supplier and distributer, fourth is
availability of secondary data and desired manpower at affordable

They prefer to operate from the outskirts of a city / town for easy and
fast movement of trucks rather than from the heart of a city where
valuable time is lost because of traffic bottlenecks etc. The fifth and
most important factor is the industrial growth in that region.

Inventory Management:

Inventory management is the key to any successful distribution

business. Inventory management provides everything you need to
know about the receipt and movement of goods, the sale, removal or
other disposition of goods, and the precise valuation and status of
goods remaining in inventory at any time.

Effective inventory management allows a distributer to meet or exceed

his customers’ expectation of product availability with the amount of
each item that will maximize the distributers’ net profit.

Re-packaging management:

Packaging is the science, art and technology of enclosing or protecting
products for distribution, storage, sale, and use. Packaging also refers
to the process of design, evaluation, and production of packages.
Packaging can be described as a coordinated system of preparing
goods for transport, warehousing, logistics, sale, and end use.

rail, road, water, cable, pipeline and space. The field can be divided
into infrastructure, vehicles, and operations.

item before that), we help in delivering the consignment at that
specified time.

Warehousing management:

A warehouse is a commercial building for storage of goods.

Warehouses are used by manufacturers, importers, exporters,
wholesalers, transport businesses, customs, etc. They are usually large
plain buildings in industrial areas of cities and towns. They usually

have loading docks to load and unload goods from trucks. Sometimes
warehouses load and unload goods directly from railways, airports, or
seaports. They often have cranes and forklifts for moving goods, which
are usually placed on ISO standard pallets loaded into pallet racks.

MAA SHOOLINI COMPANY has their own warehousing and they have
different types of warehousing like

Field warehousing: field warehousing are those which are managed by a

public warehousing agency in the premises of a factory or company
which needs the facility for borrowing from a bank against the
certification of goods in storage or in process by an independent
professional warehouseman.

Cold storage: cold storage facilities are provided for perishable against
payment of storage for the space utilized by different parties.

Distribution warehouses: ones located close to the manufacturing

concerns or consuming areas. These are designed to move goods
rather than just store them. They are large and automated warehouses
designed to receive goods from suppliers, take orders and deliver
goods to customers.

They also provides well laid out, hygienic, properly ventilated

warehouses of various space capacity, RCC Roofed or Metal Sheet
Hangars, readily constructed or custom built, Cold Rooms,
Independent Estates, inside/ outside OCTROI limits, with
office/cubicles- interiors -functional and as per your design.

Third party warehousing:

Third-party logistics involves the utilization of external organizations to

execute logistics activities that have traditionally been performed
within an organization itself. According to this definition, third party
logistics includes any form of outsourcing of logistics activities
previously performed in-house. If, for example, a company with its own
warehousing facilities decides to employ external transportation, this
would be an example of third party logistics.

In this company some times they use to take help from third party
because they used to provide some extra benefit to the distributers
and wholesalers so that it helps to improve the industrial relation.

Company has their third party warehouse in Punjab (Zirakpur)

Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh (Solan), Uttranchal Pradesh

Warehousing layout:

General Layout

In this layout, the physical arrangement of storage racks, loading and

unloading areas, equipments, offices, rooms and all other facility.

Layout designs are important for three basic reasons

• They require substantial investment of both money and effort.
• They have significant impact on the cost and efficiency of short-
term operations.
• They involve long-term commitment.

Some of the essential elements of a Maa Shoolini logistics (p) Ltd. Are

• An arrival bay or dock, where goods coming from suppliers are

delivered, checked and sorted.
• A storage bay or dock, where the goods are kept as stock.
• A departure bay or dock, suppliers’ orders are assembled and
sent out.
• A material handling system, for moving goods around.
• An information system, which records the location of all the
goods, arrival from the company, departure to distributers and
other relevant information.

Distribution Management:

Distribution can be define as-the channel structure used to transfer

product from an organization to its customer. Distribution
organizations manage the activities associated with the movement of
materials, usually finished goods or parts, from the supplier to the

MAA SHOOLINI LOGISTICS (P) LTD. Use different types of distribution

strategies like Cross Docking, Milk Runs and they also use Direct

Cross Docking: It co ordinates the supply and delivery so that the

goods arrive at the receiving area and are transferred straight away to
the loading area, where they are put into delivery vehicles. In other
words we can say that, cross docking is the movement of material
from the receiving docks directly to the shipping dock.





on receiving put them in lanes in lanes corresponding to the receiving
to the receiving doors. A second team of workers sort the goods into
shipping lanes from which a final team load them into outbound

Milk Runs: A milk run is a route in which a truck either delivers product
from a single supplier to multiple retailers or goes from multiple
supplier to single retailer.
One of the challenges of the milk run system of distribution is the high
degree of coordination and synchronization requires among the
member of the supply chain.
Here, the company transports their goods from one warehouse to
another like Delhi to Punjab, Jammu, Kanpur, Chandigarh, etc. and
they passed the goods from suppliers to retailers.
Supplier retail store




Milk runs from single supplier to multiple retailers

Direct Shipping: It refers to the method of distribution in which the
goods come directly from the supplier to the retail stores. This system
eliminates the need for the intermediate facilities that are otherwise

Outbound logistics:

The processes and network used to pick, ship, track and store if
necessary items ordered by customers, distribution centers and other
supply chain.

Outbound logistics is the part of the value of the supply chain. That is
comes under the primary activity and the outbound logistics includes
the order processing, warehousing, transportation and distribution.

They manage distribution to domestic or overseas markets via ground,

ocean or air transportation. By using a combination of their own
resources and other specialist providers, they ensure you get the most
appropriate solution for the job, but you get the benefit of a single
point of contact.

Third party logistics:

It refers to the concept of outsourcing the logistics and the distribution
of a manufacturing or service firm to a logistics service provider so
that the manufacturing company can focus on its core competencies of
the new product development, manufacturing them and marketing the

Third-party logistics involves the utilization of external organizations to

execute logistics activities that have traditionally been performed
within an organization itself. According to this definition, third party
logistics includes any form of outsourcing of logistics activities
previously performed in-house. If, for example, a company with its own
warehousing facilities decides to employ external transportation, this
would be an example of third party logistics.

Here, company some times gets the help of third party and try to solve
their external problem. Maa Shoolini Logistics (p) Ltd. provides the
help of third party and they also get the help from the third party.


In this project we learn what logistics management is and

how to utilize in the corporate world. In the logistics
management we learn the elements of it like that inventory
management, location analysis, re-packaging, transportation
management, warehousing management, distribution
management, outbound logistics, and third party logistics.
After the study of all the elements of the logistics
management we can say that without proper knowledge of
the logistics management suppliers, retailers, distributers
and customer can not get the proper benefit of goods and
services. Because logistics management is the process of
moving and positioning inventory to meet customer
requirement at the lowest possible total landed cost.
