Does logistics fall under supply chain?

The supply chain is often defined as “from source to consumption”. For example, getting apples from the tree (source), then deliver this raw material(apples) to the factory, make them into apple juice, pack it, deliver the finished product to a distribution center, deliver to retail shops, consumers purchase it (either from the retailer directly or order it from eCommerce), until the time it is consumed. Everything involved from source to consumption is the supply chain of this apple juice.


So yes, logistics is part of the supply chain.


Let’s say you purchased the apple juice but didn’t immediately consume it. Instead, you put it in your refrigerator. Your refrigerator is also part of the supply chain.
