Basic understanding of logistics as a scientific discipline

A positioin paper on the basic understanding of logistics as a scientific discipline has been developed by the Scientific Advisory Board in June 2010. An extract:

Logistics is an application-oriented scientific discipline. It analyses and models division-of-labour economic systems as time-based and location-based flows of objects (above all goods and people) in networks, supplying recommendations for action on the design and implementation of these networks. The primarily scientific questions in the logistics field are therefore related to the configuration, organisation, control or regulation of these networks and flows with the aim of paving the way for progress in the balanced achievement of economic, ecological and social objectives.
