5.0 out of 5 stars
An excellent and essential reference book, 20 Jan. 2014
I really recommend this book. Anyone involved in and committed to the continuous improvement of logistics and distribution within today's supply chain management will want this comprehensive and detailed handbook by their side. As a manager and trainer with a 20 years' career in operations, logistics and procurement management for both corporations and humanitarian organizations, I have often relied on this handbook's previous edition in my work and will continue to do so with this 5th edition update. It is an excellent reference for understanding the broad, complex and critical impact/evolution of logistics in this new century. I particularly enjoyed reading the new chapters on Multichannel Fulfilment and Humanitarian Logistics. The writing style and structure of the handbook makes it particularly easy to read for non-native English-reader (like myself). It has a wealth of practical information unmatched by any other logistics reference book I can think of.
