About The Book

This book is written comprehensively and organised into 16 chapters covering the major aspects of logistics management. Most of the books in this subject are written combining logistics management with supply chain management as logistics management is a subset of supply chain management. Since there are very few books written exclusively on logistics, an attempt is made by me to write this book to meet the needs of the readers and the student community. The special features of this book are - exhibits, box illustrations, review questions, snap shots, case exercises and subject index.
