Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management
John Wiley & Sons, Jun 10, 2008 - Business & Economics - 392 pages
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.
