The English word logistics appears to have been derived from both the Greek word logistikos and the French word logistique. Logistikos is rooted in the concept of logic and means skilled in calculation. Logistique is probably influenced by the French loger meaning to quarter (or lodge) soldiers. Hence, the combination of logic, calculation, and quartering soldiers appears to have yielded the word.
