An order is a type of request for goods or services. In the context of logistics, an order is typically a formal document that is used to track and manage the procurement and delivery of goods or services. The order may be issued by a customer or by a company’s own internal departments.

  • When an order is placed, the logistics department will typically create a schedule for procuring and delivering the goods or services.
  • This schedule may take into account factors such as lead time, transportation time, and any special requirements that must be met.
  • The order will also include instructions on how the goods or services are to be delivered.

The purpose of order in the context of logistics is to ensure that goods or services are delivered in a timely and efficient manner. By tracking orders, companies can optimize their supply chains and improve their customer service.
