Abstract

This article argues that top managers and supply chain managers need to become involved in transport and logistics policy making and include it in the strategic development of supply chain management processes. Under the assumption that these operations are outsourced, the crucial “top-down” task is to realize the trade-offs in designing and operating logistics systems and make sure that the ongoing task of making transport and logistics choices is aligned to the strategic direction set out for supply chain management business process development.
