Back Cover

A critical concern for every business, effective logistics and supply chain management is key to achieving competitive advantage. Better development and management of your supply chain network will not only cut costs but enhance your customer value. And in today’s volatile marketplace, supply chains need to be more flexible and capable of adapting to change than ever.

 

In fact, the real competition today is not between companies but between supply chains. The winning approach to supply chains is an integrated perspective that takes account of networks of relationships, sustainability and product design, as well as the logistics of procurement, distribution and fulfilment. Logistics & Supply Chain Management provides you with the core tools, processes and initiatives you need to stay one step ahead.

 

The fifth edition of this bestselling book has been completely updated: as well as additional examples and case studies throughout, there are two new chapters covering:

 

o GOING TO MARKET – how to maximise and innovate your delivery channels

o SERVICE LOGISTICS – how to adapt your supply chains to the service economy
