Logistics and warehousing at Multimex spedition
The word “logistics” comes from Greek “logos”, i.e. order, principle. These terms are necessary to fulfill the basic definition of logistics – right things at the right time to the right place. The aim of logistics is to reach the perfect state in the most efficient way, i.e. to provide the competitive level of services together with the lowest logistics costs. Logistics is a crucial part of business considering that warehousing costs represent approximately 20% of business turnover.
