Companies operating in international trade face multiple challenges in organizing logistic flow
Companies operating in international trade face multiple challenges with every market they try to target, due to the difficulties of creating an optimum product delivery infrastructure, including mainly the logistic area of the process – knowing that, the success of a business involved in import and export activities depends up to 40% on the effectiveness and promptness of the logistic companies involved in this process.
A logistic company acts like a bridge between, on one side – the companies involved in manufacturing and/or delivering products and, on the other side – the customers of these companies, having for this reason, a true responsibility regarding the professional level that should adopt when meeting the objectives committed to its clients. Logistics is known for its long history, at the beginning being mostly applied in military field, where it was seen as part of the art of war, with the purpose to manage the troop movements and military resources. Thus, Alexander the Great, during his campaign in Asia, was planning both the troop movements and the organization of ration dumps and animal feed storage; also, in the Romanian Empire, there was an officer that occupied the logista position, who was in charge with the legions movement, food supply and camp organization during nights and winters. On Economics, the first preoccupations on logistics were identified at the beginning of the 20th century, but its establishment as a new domain was recorded in the middle of the ‘70th in USA and at the beginning of the ‘80th in Europe. The importance of logistics within companies is currently widely recognized, being mostly seen as a competitive advantage, while others established new concepts, like „supply chain management”.
