Summary "The new edition of Logistics and Retail Management has been substantially updated to take account of recent developments in retail logistics. Retailers have recognized the need to have more involvement in supply chains and noted that benefits can be achieved in both service levels and cost reduction. While major strides have been made, numerous challenges remain, and new issues are constantly emerging. This book brings together research, ideas and experience of current thinking on supply chain management in retail from well-known academics and practitioners in the field. Reflecting the changing needs of the global marketplace and responding to the challenges faced by retailers, the fourth edition will have new chapters on International Fashion Supply Chain Management and CSR and the textile supply chain"-- Provided by publisher.
