Summary expansion
  • A textbook on the organized movement of goods, services, and sometimes people, that involves individuals or companies in more than one country. The focus is on private-sector transactions, though sometimes a government is a buying or selling party or both. Also discussed are the information, communications, control, and management mechanisms to manage a logistics system. No date is mentioned for the first edition. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
  • "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."
