International Logistics

Synopsis

"Implementing effective logistics strategies when operating internationally differs from managing domestic logistics because of specific factors such as shipping regulations, transportation concerns, and cultural differences. This indispensable guide presents a coherent perspective on contemporary global logistics from raw materials through production to the customer.

Now in its second edition, the book includes sections on: the roles of governments and intermediaries • international sourcing • the application of local trade laws • ocean, air, and surface carriers and systems.

Plus, this second edition has been revised with new information on supply chain management, important updates of U.S. shipping regulations, new case studies, chapter review questions, and standardized international terms of sale."

Excerpt

In preparing this second edition, we toyed briefly with changing its title. the change we considered was to use supply chain in place of logistics. We chose not to, mainly because supply chains are umbrellas that cover much more than logistics. We believe that logistics is that part of the supply chain responsible for the physical movement of materials and, sometimes, people.

A number of people and organizations helped us, and their assistance should be recognized. They include: Robert L. Argentieri, Eunice Coleman, Patricia J. Daugherty, Robert Derbin, Efstahios Efstathiou, Robert Hannus, Gary Hunter, Arne Jensen, Gothenburg University, Ken Knox, Brian Law, California Maritime Academy, Douglas Long, Eugene Magad, Nathan Muhlethaler, Dale S. Rogers, Robert Rouse, John Silvey, and Clyde Kenneth Walter.

This book is intended for use in both the business world and in classrooms. a separate Instructor’s Manual is available from the publisher and may be requested on school letterhead.
