Short description of L-TC

Logistics Services (L-TC)

Logistics has been defined as the science of planning, organizing and managing activities that provide goods or services. Logistics services involve the integration of transportation activities with production, inventory, warehousing, material handling and packaging, and information management. Logistic systems and networks are, then, characterized by a high degree of complexity in terms of organization, administration and technologies, thus requiring focused attention both by researchers and industry partners. The role of the TC is that of promoting awareness of the necessity of high level research with continuous communication and integration with professionals, industry partners and practitioners. It has to foster a community of members willing to advance the science and technology and become a forum for theoretical and practical considerations on logistics activities and their application.
