Logistics is about getting the right product, to the right customer, in the right quantity, in the right condition, at the right place, at the right time, and at the right cost (the seven Rs of Logistics)” – stated by John J. Coyle et al in the book Supply Chain Management: A Logistics Perspective.
Typically, logistics involves the activities (like procurement, maintenance, distribution, and inventory management) carried out within the boundaries of an organization and Supply Chain is the network of companies that coordinate and collaborate their actions to deliver a product to the market.
