Over time, the profession of supply chain management has evolved to meet the changing needs of the global supply chain. Supply chain and Logistics is an integral part of project planning, and therefore management of this functional area should be considered in terms of the whole project. Supply and Logistics activities should be managed in conjunction with programme activities and the different phases.

In other words, you can consider logistics activities as the operational component of supply chain management, including quantification, procurement, inventory management, transportation and fleet management, and data collection and reporting. Supply chain management includes the logistics activities plus the coordination and collaboration of staff, levels, and functions.
