Transportation Management: A Practical Handbook (Supply Chain Handbook)


Transportation Management is the most vital link in the supply chain today as it carriers the burden of "inventory in motion" in most modern supply chains. This book provides both a conceptual and deeply practical look at transportation, how it has changed since deregulation in 1980 and how modern, global supply chains, have tailored transportation into the critical connection it must be to simultaneously serve billions of consumers while also being highly efficiency to meet today's flexibility, speed, and cost constraints.
