International logistics offer the moving process of cargo globally Global logistics is a service moving cargo form source to destination in all over the world .business logistics mean to moving goods or product by sea or air or by road or by train. International logistics is the management of the flow of resources between the point of origin and in order to meet some requirements, for example, of customers or client or corporations. The resources influenced in logistics can include physical items, like food, raw materials, equipment, liquids, and staff, as well as other abstract items, such as, knowledge information, particles, time and energy. Worldwide logistics of physical items usually involves the integration of information flow, production, production, packaging, transportation, inventory, warehousing, and often security. The complexity of logistics can be analyzed, modelled, visualized, and optimized by dedicated simulation software. The denigration of the use of resources is a common motivation. Global logistics leaders have deployed technology that greatly automates many of these manual booking processes, managing global transportation carriers, rates, and execution in a single environment. The ultimate goal in global logistics execution: “one touch” information flow for all activities. Logistics is the process of implementing, planning, and controlling the effective and efficient flow of goods and services from the point of origin to the point of consumption Logistics is considered to have originated in the military's need to supply itself with arms, material, and rations as it moved from a base to a forward position. In the ancient Roman, Greek, and Byzantine Empires, military officers with the title Logistics were responsible for financial and supply distribution matters. Supply chain management encompasses the planning and management of all activities involved in sourcing and acquirement, conversion, and all logistics management activities. Importantly, intercontinental logistics also includes coordination and collaboration with channel partners, which can be vendor, agent, third party service provider and customer. The important of an International logistics system lies in the fact that it leads to ultimate consummation of sales contact. The buyer is not interested in the promises of vendor that he can supply goods at competitive price but that he actually does so. Dispatch according to the contract is essential to fulfilling the commercial and legal requirement. There are some important areas where we frequently see challenges in global logistics execution include: Sub-optimal sourcing results due to inadequate total cost data High overhead costs to manage the global sourcing and logistics function High inventories and lost sales as companies struggle to match supply and demand in the long supply chain High costs for expedited freight High levels of inbound lead-time variability Reactive rather than proactive logistics management Disconnect between inbound international movements and domestic transportation operations. International logistics is the process of controlling implementing and controlling planning, the efficient, effective flow and storage of products, services and related information from point of origin to point of consumption for the purpose of confirm the customer requirement.
