Get a complete coverage on all the key aspects of distribution, logistics and supply chain planning and management with clear and straightforward explanations from the definitive guide to supply chain philosophy, strategy and the practicalities of logistics and distribution. The Handbook of Logistics and Distribution Management is a step-by-step guide to setting up and managing supply chains to add maximum value to the organizations they serve. Benefiting from the author team's years of practical experience in some of the most challenging environments across the world (from developed economies to third-world countries and war zones), this book will enthuse students and be an invaluable desk reference throughout their careers. Packed with worked examples and real-world data, The Handbook of Logistics and Distribution Management offers complete coverage on all the key aspects of distribution, logistics and supply chain planning and management with clear and straightforward explanations. This is not a compilation of work drawn from a disparate collection of research papers and miscellaneous projects, but a logical and complete view of how supply chains fit together, including minute details of distribution and logistics. This revised 6th edition of The Handbook of Logistics and Distribution Management provides solutions to today's key challenges. With new material on international freight forwarding, environmental best practice, cool chain, intermodal shipping and outsourcing and a new, detailed index of contents. New online resources include lecture slides (tables, images and formulae from the text), glossary of terms, weblinks, blog articles, video interviews and infographics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I would recommend this as one of the most readable books available for logistics and supply chain students and professionals around the world." * Dorothea Carvalho, Director of Professional Development, CILT *
"I use and recommend this as a core text for several undergraduate and post graduate programmes where logistics features wholly or as a module. Students find it easy to read, yet comprehensive in content. It covers subjects in-depth for the initiated while at the same time being accessible to newcomers to the topic. The inclusion of clear diagrams, tables, photographs and graphs helps to explain concepts and place them in context throughout. This publication delivers everything you'd expect of a handbook. At the same time, it manages to be interesting and not at all 'dry'. An excellent book to have regardless of your role in the profession. I couldn't do my job without this book." * Helen Gallimore, FCILT FHEA; Board Director & Trustee, CILT (UK); Associate Lecturer, University of Derby *
"A whopping 720 pages filled with a wealth of information on all aspects of the supply chain, from raw materials through to final distribution of the finished product." * Martijn Graat, Logisticsmatter.com *
"This is all you need. For anyone wishing to start their career or top up their knowledge, regardless of how long they have been in the profession, this is the one-stop, excellently written publication. For anyone currently doing studies regardless of degree, including university, under or post graduates, the level of content is invaluable. This publication is my sanity check in an ever-changing world of logistics. I do recommend this book to anyone who is committed to their continued development at any level. I have been in the industry for over 30 years and have always had a copy of this publication. If you only want one book, this is it." * Ashley Rimmer, Group Compliance Officer, The Bartrum Group; Head of Logistics, Bartrums Road Services *
