The field of logistics has continued to develop at a remarkable pace. Until recently logistics was barely considered in the long-term plans of even major companies: now its strategic role is recognized in almost every organization. This is hardly surprising. Recent years have seen a growth in international trade, strategic alliances, e-commerce and increased outsourcing of non-core activities. Add to this the increased emphasis on customer satisfaction, flexible operations, time compression and concern for the environment, and it becomes clear why organizations are concentrating on getting their logistics right.
