About This Book

Many of the textbooks available for undergraduate and sub-degree students beginning to learn the concepts and practice of global supply chains are either too technical or too theoretical in nature. To fill this gap, ‘Managing Global Supply Chains’ includes chapters that cover traditional and contemporary topics (reverse logistics, logistics associations, logistics education, sustainability in supply chain management, operations in global supply chains and financial management). Globalization, advanced technology, organizational consolidation, the empowered consumer and government policy have contributed to the timeliness of the book.

The key topics of each chapter demonstrate a variety of fundamental issues in the supply chain industry: What are supply chain markets? What is the supply chain cost structure? What are supply chain strategies? How do supply chain firms design and implement strategies? What are the key roles of logistics service providers, logistics education operators and logistics associations? How should supply chain operations be managed? How is a sustainable and innovative supply chain structure created? Comparative practical case studies from Asia, North America and Latin America lend weight to the chapters.
