Global supply chain management and logistics partnerships : a LSP’s downstream program perspective
Vol.21 n°4 - 2013 - Globalisation et Supply Chain Management : Acteurs, Stratégies et Institutions

Résumé: Logistics Service Providers (LSPs) have experience of dealing with the circulation of both domestic as well as globalized flows in time and space, and thus can play a strategic role in global supply chain management. Logistics’ partnerships enable LSPs to improve global supply chains effectiveness and contribute to the redesign of corporate logistics systems. Direct delivery has been developed by LSPs to accelerate the goods circulation inside shippers’ logistics distribution systems. The case study shows the contribution that a LSP made by implementing a DC bypass strategy that enables a global retailer to quickly adjust its supply chains to suit new customer trends. The paper confirms that this strategic alliance between the LSP and its customer plays a critical role in the capacity of the logistic operator to set up global supply chains restructuring processes.
