The advent of globalisation has increased complexity for organisations; extending supply chains across large geographical areas; making them longer and more difficult to manage than ever before. Megatrends such as global economic shifts; increased consumer awareness; the rise in information technology; global pandemic outbreaks and climate change highlight a range of new challenges facing business. Strategic logistics management takes a systematic approach to managing the entire flow of materials; information; services and finance from raw material suppliers through manufacturing and warehousing; to the end user. Strategic logistics management covers the operational and strategic aspects of all the components of business logistics from a supply chain management perspective. It focuses on the integration of all business processes that add value to the customer. Terminology is clearly explained; and the main points are illustrated with practical examples.
