The nation’s precious resources are being wasted in several ways. One method how these resources are wasted is by neglect of the subject of logistics or physical distribution management. Not surprisingly, even in the institutes of management which have mushroomed in the country lately, this subject is either not taught or taught at a very low level of sophistication. The importance of the efficient utilization of resources by best coordination has not yet been recognized fully in this country. This book attempts to bridge, howsoever minimally, this gap.
