introduces the journal

Editorial objectives 

  • To provide a platform for new thinking on (new) problems, practices and techniques of global logistics and supply chain management.
  • To facilitate the interchange of information about logistics and supply chain management among business managers and researchers on a world-wide basis.
  • To provide executives and teachers with reports of current developments in the field of logistics and supply chain management.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit manuscripts that advance the science and practice of logistics and supply chain management. While articles in any area of logistics or supply chain management are welcomed, the journal is especially interested in those dealing with managerial applications of theory and techniques. Articles which provide new knowledge and guidelines for framing, interpreting or imple-menting the logistics process in the supply chain are of particular interest. This implies that the journal is particularly interested in empirical research including a special preference for qualitative research. All articles are anonymously reviewed for publication by referees who look for original ideas that are clearly pre-sented as a contribution to scientific knowledge.
