By Ken L
Format:Paperback
This book is a excellent guide to the sometimes arcane world of logistics and supply chain management. The author has that rare ability to explain complex topics in an engaging and accessible way. This is important because as more companies are being defined by how effective they are at logistics and distribution, their customers, directors and shareholders are forcing the issue into the spotlight.

Of the large number of books published on this topic, very few are 'a good read', this book is emphatically one of those. The author has skilfully mapped out a framework providing the relevant context for the industry today and then describes the various operational segments involved. There are also some good examples/case studies and a nod to some of the trends that may have a profound impact on the industry in future (e.g. 3D printing). The illustrations are clear and included to support the narrative, not just to provide 'eye candy', all of which compliment the whole.

In my view there is just one small omission, this is in regards to technology. Given that much of the industry today is unable to function without its information systems underpinning, a basic primer on some of the technologies involved would have been helpful.

In summary, this is a noteable attempt to explain a topic that impacts everybody in some form or other. I suspect it would find a perfect audience with the senior directors and board members of organisations who are dealing with logistics at a strategic level. Its a great primer, written by someone from inside the industry with practical experience and it shows. It deserves a wider audience.
