What do We Mean by Logistic Management

Logistics management is the governance of supply chain functions. Logistics management activities typically involve inbound and outbound transportation management, fleet management, inventory, materials handling, order fulfillment, logistics network design, supply/demand planning, and management of third party logistics services providers. To varying degrees, the logistics management is also related with customer service, sourcing and procurement, production planning and scheduling, packaging and assembly. Logistics management is part of all levels of planning and execution -- strategic, operational and tactical.

Change Table Borders

There is a library that is very helpful for workflow diagramming, the half-length people illustrations. Open it from Illustrations group. Go to Symbols tab, and then use Text Tool to add text box to the shape. The amazing advantage of this tool is that the added text box is glued to the shape. When the shape moves, the text box also moves. If you add text box with control point, the text box can be repositioned by dragging the control point. Therefore, you can modify shapes more easily and flexibly in Edraw, a lot easier than PowerPoint.
