The management of logistics and supply chain operations is of vital importance in the defence sector. Defence Logistics looks at established theories and their practical utility, providing insights into current thinking for postgraduate and undergraduate students, lecturers, researchers, practitioners and professionals through real-life case studies.
Defence Logistics focuses on key areas of logistics and supply chain management in context, such as sustainability, inventory management, resilience, procurement, information systems and crisis response. This comprehensive and up-to-the-minute collection includes contributions from international academics from a range of universities, academies and defence schools, along with practitioners who are currently working in the field of defence logistics.
This book offers a great academic view of how defence logisticians can get ahead of the game before weapons are deployed, let alone the first shots fired. It pulls together many of the underlying principles in an easily digestible format. I wish I could have had the benefit of this compendium before I deployed to Iraq to help me understand how we should have done it better!
