A new generalization of the logistic distribution is defined and studied, namely, the gamma-logistic distribution. Various properties of the gamma-logistic are obtained. The structural analysis of the distribution includes moments, mode, quantiles, skewness, kurtosis, Shannon's entropy and order statistics. The method of maximum likelihood estimation is proposed for estimating the model parameters. For illustrative purposes, a real data set is analyzed as an application of the gamma-logistic distribution.
