Logistics and the Extended Enterprise by Sandor Boyson

Book Description

Logistics and the Extended Enterprise is the result of a four-year, $1 million research project devoted to the study of best practices in supply chain management--a necessity for companies that want to be competitive in a global business environment. Written by members of the University of Maryland's Supply Chain Management Center, this important book takes a first-of-its-kind look at supply chain and logistics/transportation management organization structure. It offers a paradigm for successfully implementing a global supply chain and explains the role logistics plays in enabling this approach. The book answers the question of how organizations can best apply supply chain management practices to break down internal and external walls and become more effective extended enterprises, with a focus on lessons learned at some of the world's leading corporations. The authors gained first-hand insights into this subject through interviews, site visits, focus groups, and targeted surveys involving over 600 companies across a broad range of industries. This book summarizes their core research findings and conclusions, using case studies from such companies as Amoco, DuPont, Johnson & Johnson, UPS, Georgia Pacific, and others. Logistics and the Extended Enterprise will provide the reader with both the conceptual and analytic tools necessary to manage a global supply chain and put a world-class logistics operation in place.
