Achieving state-of-the-art excellence and attaining the cost reductions associated with outstanding logistics efforts is an obvious gain in terms of competitive edge and profitability. As logistics tools evolve in comprehensiveness and complexity, and the use of these new tools becomes more pervasive, maintaining a position of leadership in logistics functions also becomes increasingly difficult. And in spite of its importance not only to the bottom line but also to the functionality of your operations, logistics improvement often lags industry requirements. Taking a unique engineering approach, the Logistics Engineering Handbook provides comprehensive coverage of traditional methods and contemporary topics. The book delineates basic concepts and practices, provides a tutorial for common problems and solution techniques, and discusses current topics that define the state of the logistics market. It covers background information that defines engineering logistics, activities and implementation, transportation management, enabling technologies, and emerging trends. Each chapter includes either a brief case study overview of an industrially motivated problem or a tutorial using fabricated data designed to highlight important issues. Presentation, organization, and quality of content set this book a part. Its most distinctive feature is the engineering focus, instead of the more usual business/supply chain focus, that provides a mathematically rigorous treatment without being overly analytical. Another important characteristic is the emphasis on transportation management, especially freight transportation. The section on emerging and growing trends makes the handbook particularly useful to the savvy logistics professional wishing to exploit possible future trends in logistics practice. The handbook is a one-stop shopping location for logistics engineering reference materials ranging from basics to traditional problems, to state-of-the-market concerns and opportunities.

As the material anchors of globalization, North America’s global port cities channel flows of commodities, capital, and tourists. This book explores how economic globalization processes have shaped these cities' political institutions, social structures, and urban identities since the mid-1970s. Although the impacts of financialization on global cities have been widely discussed, it is curious that how the global integration of commodity chains actually happens spatially — creating a quantitatively new, global organization of production, distribution, and consumption processes — remains understudied. The book uses New York City, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Montreal as case studies of how once-redundant spaces have been reorganized, and crucially, reinterpreted, so as to accommodate new flows of goods and people — and how, in these processes, social, environmental, and security costs of global production networks have been shifted to the public.

This contributed volume presents state-of-the-art advances in logistics theory in various fields as well as case studies. The book reports on a number of recently conducted studies in the Dinalog and the EffizienzCluster LogistikRuhr, thus bridging the gap between different perspectives of theoretical and applied research. A selection of theoretical topics, practical examples, case studies and project reports is presented in this volume. The editors carefully selected contributions from a wide variety of projects, which were carried out in both the Dinalog cluster and the Effizienzcluster LogistikRuhr. The contributions are grouped in five main sections, each representing key domains in the evolution of logistics and supply chain management: sustainability, urban logistics, value chain management, IT-based innovation, knowledge management. This book is intended for both researchers and practitioners in the field of logistics and supply chain management, to serve as an important source of information for further research as well as to stimulate further innovation.

Guide to Food Safety and Quality during Transportation, Controls, Standards and Practice, Second Edition provides a solid foundation outlining logistics and delivery control solutions to protect the food transportation industry. Since its first publication, the U.S. FDA has finalized a number of Food Safety Modernization Act rules designed to improve the protection of the public from adulterants known to cause illness and death. Food shippers, carriers and receivers throughout the world are impacted as import controls have tightened. This book provides the information needed to comply with the Act’s requirements and tactics on how to achieve safety in the food supply chain. Filled with legal, liability and practical solutions, food transporters and buyers will be able to structure company-wide business practices as part of their overall food safety and quality agendas. For food safety and quality students, the book provides much needed insight into a critical, but overlooked, aspect of the food safety and food quality spectrums. This food transporter piece of the overall food safety and quality puzzle provides the linking mechanism needed to improve the supply chain communication and interdependence sought after by governmental and industry executives. Includes important information on how to comply with the Food Safety Modernization Act Includes technological advances in sanitation, testing, and traceability, and highlights cost effective solutions to enhance food safety Provides practical solutions to transportation problems, including container sanitation, temperature controls, traceability, adulteration, and other food safety and quality issues Presents potential sources of adulteration, both chemical and biological at producer level, both domestic and foreign, to reduce transporter liability Provides new and updated information, including environmental monitoring, statistical control systems, supply-chain management, and more
