Pioneering Supply Chain Design
As competition between value chains on globalized markets is constantly getting fiercer, there is a growing trend to achieve closer collaboration and integration within these value chains and increasingly more complex supply networks. Additionally, in the wake of the growing number of natural catastrophes with devastating effects on the humanitarian situation in the respective regions of their occurrence, researchers increasingly look into ways to enhance the processes of humanitarian logistics and seek for new ideas to support social, ecological and economic sustainability in logistic processes.
This volume, edited by Thorsten Blecker, Wolfgang Kersten, and Christian M. Ringle, provides valuable insights into:
- supply chain collaboration efforts
- sustainable supply chain solutions
- innovative information technology in supply chains
- supply chain design concepts.
This volume appeals to researchers and practitioners alike, who are interested in current contributions by international authors, providing theoretical, empirical and case-study oriented background and information on their research work.
