Every year on June 28, National Logistics Day encourages awareness of the significant part that the logistics sector plays in both the domestic and international industries.
National Logistics Day Meaning
Marco Polo’s journey over the Silk Road to China marked the beginning of the logistics sector. He opened the route for later traders and merchants going throughout China and Europe with his thorough written account. The development of the “horseless carriage” semi-truck in 1896 increased the flow of products across our nation. The very first air cargo flight happened in 1910, just 14 years later. The flight from Dayton to Columbus significantly accelerated the delivery of products inside the United States. The first cargo vessel left New Jersey’s port for Texas in 1956.
The movement of goods around the world was irrevocably altered by shipments. These developments show how communications connect the world now as they’ve always done.
In the United States today, logistical costs make up close to 8% of just about everything we produce and sell. That covers storage, shipping, and other related activities. The 3rd logistics (3PL) sector, which includes warehouse managers, truckers, and other professionals who assist companies in effectively managing logistics throughout their supply chains, is an $800 billion industry in and of itself.
