Logistic English in Business
Logistic English in Business & Shipping
- A Language Course on the Art of Planning the Handling of Goods -
Business can be done, accomplished and handled in various ways. So can packing,
storing & transport. Whether or not we start by looking at the manufacturer,
wholesaler, retailer or we simply focus on the consumer’s point of view, we’ll
find numerous variants all along the lines of
the distribution of goods.
Logistics never was, never is and never will be, a simple subject. However, it
can most definitely be an important piece of information, as it tends to gather
all vital information regarding the movement of goods, products and material,
personnel or no personnel.
Some tend to believe logistics come into the picture first at the point of
rolling out the shipment. Not necessarily so. Good logistics come into the
picture usually as part of a production process, and later also becomes a key
element in a good business deal.
One might even say it’s an essential part
of good purchasing procedures to allow for logistics and logistics planning.
