Effective development and management of your supply chain network will cut your costs and enhance your customer value. This is a sustainable source of advantage in today’s turbulent global marketplace, where demand is difficult to predict and supply chains need to be more flexible as a result.

In fact, the real competition today is not between companies, but between supply chains. The winning approach to supply chains is an integrated perspective that takes account of networks of relationships, sustainability and product design, as well as the logistics of procurement, distribution, and fulfilment.

This book was my first introduction to the fields of logistics and supply chain management as the textbook for my graduate-level international logistics class. What I like most about this book is that Martin Christopher is concise. Christopher created a book that, while compact, conducts a wide-reaching overview of the subject. There is room for Christopher to delve deeper into certain topics, but his avoidance is what makes the book highly accessible. I highly recommend this as an introduction to the subject for business students, MBA students, or anyone who wants to get familiar with logistics and supply chain management.

It gives a very good overview of SCM. It makes Supply Chain Management look far more simpler than it really is or has become in the last few decades. However, the depth is missing!

This book is very suitable for both graduate and undergraduate courses. It is easy to understand and it is comprehensive for people who wants to have a general idea about the subject without involving much mathematical calculations.
