Now in its sixth edition, this definitive text explains the nuts and bolts of logistics and distribution in accessible language. Covering all the major elements of modern logistics, The Handbook of Logistics and Distribution Management is an indispensable guide for both students of logistics as well as newly-appointed distribution, logistics and supply chain managers.
