Management of Logistics Service Providers

Logistics service providers are core actors of global supply chains. They connect suppliers, production companies and customers by providing all services around the material and information flow, such as transportation, warehousing, order management and also value added services. In this lecture you learn how to tackle strategic questions from the perspective of logistics companies: whether to individualize to standardize service offers or how to deal with the new challenges arising from new production technologies (e.g. 3D-printing) and Big Data analytics.
