Logistics today is highly complex activity that requires computer optimization of distribution paths and smart warehouse utilization all while there is a continuous shortening of storage time. Such a complicated activity cannot afford a second of information systems inaccessibility, or loss of knowledge about the storage status / location of the truck.
It makes logistics a true user of ICT infrastructure, but not necessarily an expert in its establishment or maintenance. Its focus is elsewhere. Therefore, separating computer support for logistics into a data centre is a wise decision.
