    Logistics is basically transport and warehousing systems put "together" into a logistics chain to get product to consumer.

    The process for consumer goods is products are put into boxes, which are put in a w:cardboard box, which are put on a w:pallet which are put into a Twenty-foot equivalent unit container which is loaded onto truck and taken to the w:container port where it is loaded onto a w:containership, shipped, unloaded and transported to logistics hub where the pallets are unloaded from the container and put into warehousing and/or JIT chain i.e. distrubuted to the point-of-sale
