Manners-Bell, who is associated with a supplier of market solutions to the global logistics industry, surveys the field of global logistics from both the demand and supply sides, addressing the history and development of key segments; demand-side trends and political, economic, social, technological, environmental, and legislative forces creating change in the industry; internal supply-side dynamics and microeconomics that help facilitate change; and technological developments influencing and disrupting the future of the supply chain and logistics industry. He discusses the roles of the contract logistics and freight forwarding sectors and the dynamics of the express parcels, container shipping, air cargo, road freight, and intermodal industries, as well as the development of logistics clusters and the role of technology. This edition has new coverage of managing information flows, sustainability and ethics, new technologies, and the e-commerce revolution, and new chapters on innovation and disruption, an analysis of new supply chain technologies, and a new section on sustainable supply chains. It also discusses trends and developments in the industry, such as 3D printing, mega-cities, and innovative business models. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
