What is logistics?
The logistics activity consists of managing the physical flow of products / data to the end customer in compliance with specifications that include criteria such as deadlines, quality of service, optimisation of stocks and goods flows.
To optimise a logistics strategy, it is necessary to rely on innovative tools that allow real-time visualisation of stocks and offer traceability of these products. This strategy includes the management of flows, the provision of the resources necessary to achieve the objectives, and the management of costs.

Testimonies of students and graduated in logistics
Logistics is a very broad field. Working in purchasing was a gateway for me to be able to touch everything. I'm in contact with a lot of people, such as engineers, procurement and transport departments.
The purchasing department has a global view of the entire logistics process.
Juliette DÔ, Logistics site manager at Volvo Canada
I lead teams that include about 180 people based in Luxemburg, India and Budapest. This is may be the easiest part of my work: everyone has a chance to influence strategy, the opportunity to have an impact on things, and to ‘create’ the future… They are passionate people and digital addicts!
Virginie VAST, Head of Digital Supply Chain at Vodafone
For the last two years I have been at Decathlon, leading a team of forty people with a range of different approaches and skills. Together, we manage supplies to a number of stores in France and abroad. We ensure the sustainability of our operations and the safety of our site.
Amine BAHR, Head of logistics depertment at Decathlon
There were two open positions in this company, which specialised in online fundraising for private or solidarity events. At that time, they did not have a marketing director or an operations director.
I first applied for the position of marketing director. The recruitment process takes some time. And finally I was offered the position of operations director because I had experience in brand creation (finance, marketing, project prioritisation, etc.).
Lise VEAUVY, Director of operations at Leetchi
The "logistics and transport" sector is experiencing strong growth with more than 2 million jobs in France. The e-commerce sector and new technologies associated with new consumer habits are boosting developments: green logistics, reverse logistics, last mile logistics.
These changes are pushing industrial companies in particular to review their organisation. Soft skills such as transversality and agility are now expected from logistics departments. Managers must be able to evolve in an international and multicultural environment and demonstrate an ability to mobilise and unite virtual teams.
Logistics and transport activities currently employ over 2 million people in France. This market is expected to grow by a further 1.5% each year.
