Written by two highly experienced authors, this new text provides a concise, global approach to logistics and supply chain management.   Featuring both a practical element, enabling the reader to ‘do’ logistics (select carriers, identify routes, structure warehouses, etc.) and a strategic element (understand the role of logistics and supply chain management in the wider business context), the book also uses a good range of international case material to illustrate key concepts and extend learning.
