Logistics, by definition is coordinating complex operations involved in the moving of people, equipment, and supplies. It is very important in our daily lives. During World War II alone, the logistics involved in preparing for D Day at Normandy were awe inspiring. Not only was the movement of the troops, landing craft, and materials all in need of coordination, but getting those things to the proper areas before the invasion took massive planning. The world could not properly function without logistics.
