Logistics is generally the detailed organization and implementation of a complex operation. In a general business sense, logistics is the management of the flow of things between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet requirements of customers or corporations. The resources managed in logistics can include physical items, such as food, materials, animals, equipment and liquids, as well as abstract items, such as time and information. The logistics of physical items usually involves the integration of information flow, material handling, production, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing, and often security.
In military science, logistics is concerned with maintaining army supply lines while disrupting those of the enemy, since an armed force without resources and transportation is defenseless. Military logistics was already practiced in the ancient world and as modern military have a significant need for logistics solutions, advanced implementations have been developed, especially for the United States Armed Forces. In military logistics, logistics officers manage how and when to move resources to the places they are needed.
Logistics is the stage name of Matt Gresham, a drum and bass music producer and DJ from Cambridge, England. He is signed to Hospital Records. He creates his music using the Ableton sequencer. His music style tends to be towards the more soul-influenced styles of drum & bass but is also targeted at a club audience rather than a home audience, which is described as such by Hospital Records as "bridging the gap between a lacklustre subgenre, liquid funk, and more exciting, dancefloor orientated drum and bass". His two brothers – Dan Gresham (best known as Nu:Tone) and Nick Gresham (known under the names Other Echoes and, formerly, Bastille) – are also producers signed to Hospital Records. Matt has also collaborated with Dan under the name Nu:Logic.
Matt Gresham grew up listening mainly to guitar based music such as Rage Against the Machine, and downtempoelectronic music. He took no interest in drum and bass, unlike his brother at the time, until he was introduced to the "Music Box" LP released by Full Cycle Records, which appealed to him as he described it "like downtempo tunes with double time beats".
The term Logistics 2.0 represents a vision of future logistics opportunities, benefits and efficiencies achieved through the deployment of new technologies such as 3D Printing and machine-to-machine communications.
There is also a monthly magazine entitled Logistics 2.0, published by 9.9 Media for senior executives and professional managers involved in management of logistics, transportation and supply chains. The publication covers issues, trends, technologies and business practices in supply chain management, and delivers information needed by decision makers to improve cycle times, reduce inventories, and work more efficiently. 9.9 Media is a diversified media company started by former ABP CEO Dr. Pramath Raj Sinha along with four of his other colleagues. It targets consumer, business and professional communities through magazines, websites, events, and peer groups. Other than Logistics 2.0, 9.9 Media publishes several other magazines, manages professional institutes and host online platforms.
