Dr. Zarkov’s Tiki Lounge Playlist: March 6, 2013
The theme of this week’s show was a longitudinous and latitudunal commemoration of the practice of logistics in all its multifarious and munificent forms in honor of one of our unsurpassed underwriters, the International Logistics Association. The science of logistics has been defined as the management of inventory in movement or at rest, and this week’s show also focused primarily on the water side of the supply chain because the importance of this to our economy has been brought top of mind by recent labor actions at our nation’s ports.
