The development of international trade is driven by international logistics and management and the provision of the global supply chain. The ultimate objective of global supply chain management is to link the market place, distribution network, manufacturing/processing/assembly process, and procurement activity in such a way that customers are serviced at a higher level yet lower cost. Overall this has introduced a new breed of management in a computer literate environment operating in a global infrastructure. Addressing this complex topic, Alan Branch's new book fulfills two clear objectives: to provide a concise, standard work on the subject, written in lucid language that embraces all the ingredients of a notoriously complex subject with a strategic focus to extol best practices and focus on all areas of the industrial and consumer sectors and their interface with changing international market needs. Until now, no book dedicated to international logistics and supply chain management was available. Practically-oriented, this book features numerous case studies and diagrams from logistic operators. An ideal resource for management students, academics and managers who need a succinct treatment of global operations, Branch's book skillfully illustrates his ideas in practice. It is a book which should be on the shelf of every practitioner and student of the subject. Also available from Routledge: Elements of Shipping, Eighth Edition, Alan E. Branch.

A supply chain refers to a system of people, activities, organizations, resources and information that are involved in the movement of a product or service from a supplier to the end customer. The activities in a supply chain involve the transformation of raw materials, natural resources and components into the finished product. In special supply chains, the used products can re-enter the supply chain when the residual value is recyclable. There can be different types of supply chain models that address the upstream and downstream aspects of supply chain management. The Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model is the cross-industry standard measuring total supply chain performance. It includes the parameters of production flexibility, delivery and order fulfillment performance, inventory and asset turns, etc. Supply chain logistics are two closely related aspects of any business. Logistics management is generally regarded as a sub-discipline of supply chain management. This book provides comprehensive insights into the field of logistics. Most of the topics introduced herein cover new techniques and the applications of supply chain management. This book, with its detailed analyses and data, will prove immensely beneficial to professionals and students involved in this area at various levels.
