What Is Logistics Technology?

Chances are, you know what logistics technology is — but you may not know it by its name. Logistics technology involves managing the flow and storage of materials and finished goods through the supply chain to the consumer — critical processes in today’s economy.
According to the U.S. Department of Commerce and Bureau of Labor Statistics, material handling and logistics:
  • is one of America’s largest and fastest-growing industries
  • accounts for more than $156 billion in annual expenditures on equipment, information technology, goods and services
  • employs more than 700,000 workers. (learn about careers in logistics)
The DFW metroplex is one of the largest points of distribution and logistics in the United States.
