This process consists of various functions, which have to be properly managed to bring effectiveness and efficiency in the supply chain of the organisation. The major logistical functions are order processing, inventory management, warehousing, transportation, material handling and storage system and, logistical packaging. Customer service is an important element in marketing, irrespective of the product being tangible and intangible. In logistics management, customer service is the key element. Proper communication and information processing between customers and marketers is central to the supply chain philosophy. Highly satisfied customers are more loyal than less satisfied customers.

Quality of packaging, improving the product delivery and maintaining a good relationship between the warehouse boys and the vehicle control managers are found to be related to customer satisfaction in logistics and supply chain management.
