  The Added Value of Logistics
Hessel Visser, Partner, Netherlands, Member
  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.

- The cost of the investment.
