About the Book

The logistics developed by multinational companies consist of many mechanisms and processes. Understanding how they work—as well as how different frameworks can result in an efficient system of logistics management—is no easy task. Robert Chira, a faculty member at Dimitrie Cantemir University in Bucharest, Romania, explains how logistics work in this textbook geared for students and businesspeople. Taking a step-by-step approach, he introduces readers to logistics, explains the importance of logistics in a business environment, and delves into integrated logistics. He also explores how globalization is affecting logistics management, how logistics can provide companies with a competitive advantage, how to implement the latest competitive strategies offered by financial institutions, and why customer service must be a key part of any strategy. Moreover, he provides examples of how companies in Romania have leveraged logistics management in different sectors to achieve lasting success. Unlike other textbooks on logistics, this one goes beyond theory to provide ways to improve logistics in order to accomplish performance objectives. Build a business built to last, and outperform competitors with the lessons in International Logistics Management.
