As the maintenance logistics manager of Landmark Management Group I get asked a lot what logistics are and how they relate to property management, so let me explain. Logistics is the planning, organization and consultation for the business’s purchasing, warehousing, inventory management, transportation and data entry.
In the property management business logistics plays a vital role in successfully minimizing operational/owner cost while continually implementing improvements to increase productivity. For Landmark’s maintenance division logistics can be simply defined as having the right quantity of the right item at the right time and place for the right price in the right condition to get the job done in the most efficient and effective manner the first time. So as the UPS commercial says, “that’s logistics”.
