Logistics and supply chain management are the areas which are felt often overlap.
Each and every company define differently both these things. Logistics deals with the strategy between marketing and production. Supply chain management focuses more on purchasing and procurement.

Supply chain management refers to the whole process from sourcing to distribution, and logistics is one part of the process. Generally, supply chain logistics is the part that deals with transportation and storage of the goods.

Logistics software helps to hold a sequential order in the transportation of cargos. It gives all details about traffic routes and modes of transportation to satisfy customer requirements at a lower cost. This software also enables a customer to track and trace the status of an purchased product during transportation. Logistics software in submission management aids in warehousing infrastructure, goods movement, quality assurance, and product labeling. Freight billing, payment, and auditing are made quicker and reliable with the introduction of this software. Other areas in which logistics software find its program are financial services, sales, marketing, human resource management, efficiency evaluation, order processing, and customer support.
