The Differences Between Transportation and Logistics

Sep 23, 2021

Ruan's Chief Commercial Officer Marty Wadle and Joe Lynch of the Logistics of Logistics podcast discuss the differences between transportation and logistics. While those terms are often used interchangeably, they mean different things and both have meaningful impacts on supply chains. 

Listen to this podcast where Wadle and Lynch unpack the differences. Ultimately, logistics services add value through planning and designing solutions for end-to-end network optimization, while transportation services add value as one component of logistics services.
