    Your spelling of "concentrated" is wrong.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Hello again,

    I haven't found that piece of writing, as you said, in any newspaper, I wrote it myself, and I have been wondering whether it is correct or not.

    Hi,

    Shouldn't it be "logistics are concentrated (focused)..."?

    The words to which you refer are my "signature", they were not aimed at your post. As you can see, I have removed my signature from this post to avoid confusion.

    Yes, and "the" isn't necessary.

    It's not a true sentence. Logistics is necessary for army supplies, organising a charity event, and many other situations not involving trading. Of course, it depends on what you mean by 'concentrated' or 'focused'.

    Welcome to the forum, Pauline.

    Please note that as your question is about Logistics, that would have been a better thread title.

    Note it said treated as singulars or plural.
    I would use the singular.

    Mathematics is ...
    Physics is the study of ...
    Logistics is ...
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
