An Overview of Logistics Management at McKenna
Logistics management is a specialized industry that involves the seamless integration of information processing, inventory management, warehousing, material handling, packaging and distribution. Handling all of these important elements on your own can distract you from doing what you do best – running your business and developing your products and services.
