The Added Value of Logistics

Logistics can contribute to a competitive advantage by supporting the improvement of the flow of goods and information in the organisation so that the turnaround of money is increased while also offering a good customer service.
Return on Investment = profit margin * inventory turn over.
Logistics can support both the profit margin by lowering costs and inventory turns by reducing lead times.

  Utkarsh, Student (MBA)

Question for Hessel Viser, Partner, Netherlands

@Hessel Visser, please explain how Return On Investment in your view depends on inventory turnover
Because I think Return On Investment is dependent on:
- The gains from the investment, and
- The cost of the investment.
