The Evolution of Supply Chains and Logistics

Safaa Sindi, Michael Roe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The movement from physical distribution management through logistics to the current models of supply chains has taken place over a considerable period of time but it is only in recent decades that this has gained momentum and the models of supply chains have become increasingly sophisticated. This chapter looks at the origins of supply chain modelling and the situation that currently exists in particular focussing on the technological and globalisation influences. The forecasting and initiation of strategic supply chains are also discussed before looking at the central problem issue facing the development of a strategic supply chain model selection process for business.
