Explore all stages of the supply chain, from raw materials through to the final distribution of the finished product, with this definitive guide.
The Handbook of Logistics and Distribution Management explains clearly the functions and elements related to logistics, supply chain and distribution management. Covering all the major aspects of modern logistics, it is an indispensable guide for both students as well as newly appointed distribution, logistics and supply chain managers seeking to improve service and lower costs while reducing environmental impact. Case studies bring the theory to life and help explain fully how to set up and operate a supply chain.
This fully revised 6th edition of The Handbook of Logistics and Distribution Management includes the latest advances in logistics and covers new topics being studied on academic and professionals courses. There are whole new sections on critical topics including costs and trade-offs, demand forecasting, inventory planning, international freight forwarding and outsourcing logistics.
I would recommend this as one of the most readable books available for logistics and supply chain students and professionals around the world.
