The coordinator is a key member of the logistics management team in many organizations. The coordinator is in charge of expediting the best possible method for the movement of merchandise. The coordinator commonly uses shipping lines, airlines, trains and trucks to deliver the merchandise to its final location. Additionally, the coordinator must arrange for pickups and deliveries to different loading platforms. Timing is critical for the coordinator because one missed delivery can cause major delays for the entire organization.

Additionally, distribution logistics stores and transports the finished products to intermediate storage locations prior to customer delivery. Order fulfillment ensures the efficiency, reliability, accuracy and timeless of deliveries.
