The Role of Logistics In Developing the Nation The growth of a nation depends on its ability to induce investments either locally or internationally. In line with this, the nation would require advanced and efficient movement of goods to ensure that economic activities can be transacted and delivered in a timely and organized manner.

Sustainable Environmental Logistics When we say sustainable, we mean to say that as the world is progressing, the country is also doing its best to reduce further damage to the environment. Businesses need to transport goods and people. Cargoes are moved by motor vehicle such as cars, trucks, ships and airplanes. All the four methods of transport emit harmful CO2 which ultimately contribute to climate change. It is predicted that our existing technology is not sufficient to stop the environmental degradation of the earth.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
