Logistics represents the process involved in getting a product from the factory floor to the store shelf, and everything in between. It includes the global sourcing of the product — where it’s manufactured, even include the sourcing of various components within the manufacturing process — its transportation, the industrial real estate sites and warehouses that hold it prior to delivery. Thus manage the process from beginning to end.
Global Brand Resources is able to manage Logistics, the flow of resources between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet particular requirements. The resources managed in logistics can include physical items, such as food, materials, equipment, as well as abstract items, such as time – as time lines are an integral part of any supply operation.
The logistics of physical items usually involves the integration of information flow, material handling, production, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing, and often security. The complexity of logistics will be modeled, analyzed, visualized, and optimized by dedicated GBR specialists.

- Procurement logistics
- Production logistics
- Distribution logistics
