What is Logistics?

Logistics is the science of moving, storing and distributing goods, funds, and information from the point of origin to consumption. Simply put, Logistics means having the right thing, at the right place, at the right time.

Why is Logistics important?

The continuous growth of international trade and e-commerce along with its relentless competition is causing the Logistics industry in the United States to grow. As the country's top import and export hub, Los Angeles County has a high demand for professionals in the Logistics industry.  

Our Mission:

The goal of East Los Angeles College’s Technology & Logistics Program is to prepare students for 21st Century careers in the Logistics industry. Since our inception, we have made a strong commitment to stay current with industry trends and establish strategic industry partnerships to influence curriculum and land careers for students. Our Motto: Moving at the speed of business.
