This book, now in a second edition, is a MUST HAVE reference for anyone in the transportation/logistics areas. The authors bring their varied backgrounds and expertise to this topic in a tightly organized work which reflects McDougall's extensive experience in the logistics supply chain area as a specialist in CIP for the Canadian Military and Radvanovsky's extensive background in IT systems security.
The book is comprehensive, tightly organized and written and encyclopedic in its coverage.
