About the book

Emerging markets hold the key to the development of the global logistics industry over the next 20 years. Whilst developed economies struggle to come to terms with huge levels of debt, newly industrialized markets are showing strong growth prospects as manufacturers and investors look at low-cost production locations. Essential reading for anyone involved in emerging markets or global logistics, Logistics and Supply Chains in Emerging Markets is the definitive guide to maximising opportunities in emerging markets. This book explores the inherent challenges for global logistics providers when investing and operating in widely-dispersed and sometimes unstable emerging markets.

Taking into account the social, economic, and political context, John Manners-Bell, Thomas Cullen, and Cathy Roberson guide you through the key considerations and provide a realistic evaluation of the infrastructures in place to support expansion in emerging markets. Logistics and Supply Chains in Emerging Markets analyses prospects for Asia, Latin America, Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East, including the potential of future logistics hotspots. There are dedicated sections on the BRIC transport and logistics sectors. Supported by a unique downloadable survey of 800 top executives, Logistics and Supply Chains in Emerging Markets gives you unrivalled access to top executives' evaluation of which emerging markets have the greatest potential to become future logistics hotspots, and how they integrate with global supply chains now and in the future.
