The Fourth Edition of Supply Chain Logistics Management presents Logistics in
the context of integration within a firm’s Supply Chain Strategy and Operations.
The framework of Supply Chain Management is initially presented thereby creating
a foundation for in-depth study of the five logistics operational components in
Part Two. Challenges and strategies related to design and operational
integration of logistics within a global supply chain are discussed in Part
three. Part Four focuses on administrative challenges related to cross
organizational collaboration, performance measurement, and concludes with the
challenges of managing risk and achieving sustainability.
An essential feature of the overall presentation is the integration of
topical materials and examples into the Supply Chain Logistics value creation
process. Text materials are supported by study and challenge questions as well
as contemporary cases. The overall presentation integrates the discussion of
information technology throughout the text. Illustrations and examples highlight
how firm’s deal with operational challenges and use logistics performance to
gain competitive advantage.
