Your Learning Team represents a newly formed logistics department for a start-up bottled water company located in Denver, CO.
The company president was hesitant to create your department due to a lack of understanding of its purpose, advantages, and strategic placement within the organization.
The president once rejected the concept of supply chain management as unnecessary saying, "What would a logistics department do for us? Don't we already have all
the departments we need?" The operations director wants a report that explains the role and purpose of logistics within a typical organization.
Prepare a 1,050 to 1,400 word business report that examines the relationships between logistics and other business functions that are both
internal and external to the organization.Include an explanation of the implications of geographical location and channel strategy. Recognize that these
implications will develop the foundation for how your department will structure an overall logistics program.
Include a flow chart or similar diagram (as an appendix) to depict these relationships. Recognize that the operations director will use your documents to
justify the new logistics department to the company president.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines .
