What do you have in mind when you think about logistics in the above stated terms or where in your daily life do you think logistics is involved? Which companies (French or international) do you think have a business model that is highly dependent on logistics or has logistics even as a core competence? Why do you think could logistics become more important in the future (or why are you studying logistics – apart from the fact that it might be a mandatory course)? And: which questions would you therefore expect to be dealt with in a logistics course?
