Function / Activity

Logisticians organise the flow of goods in the structure for which they work, while meeting deadlines and minimising costs:

  • Supply (of raw materials, provisions…), order control.
  • Store inventory management
  • Transportation planning: shipment, receipt and product delivery
  • They also oversee the application of current regulation (customs, import-export, security…).
  • They may need to do – sometimes substantial – team management within a given warehouse or service: logistics operators management (order pickers…), quality control, continuous improvement…
  • They are preferred contacts for several operators inside (commercial service, production, direction…) and outside (suppliers, carriers, customers…) a site.
