This is a revised and updated version of a well-received book that offers a host of practical advice, tools and frameworks to help solve some of the common problems and issues that affect those working within the logistics and supply chain sectors.
It could be viewed as a concise, secret “cheat sheet”, ready to be deployed as needed, with over one hundred solutions within areas such as supply chain, logistics, inventory management, warehousing and transportation. Don’t feel embarrassed by owning this book, yet if you want to preserve your modesty and let your co-workers think you really do know it all, then an investment in brown paper and tape could be an option!
For those who are new to this sector or are studying it, the book is going to be a Godsend since it provides clarity and real-world examples and advice to supplement the theoretical learning. This reviewer wished that he had this book when “enjoying” (should that be enduring?) some of the mathematical formulas extant within the logistics field. In some ways, it would not hurt for others within a company to have sight and access to this book, since it can give a bit of an overview to a wide range of subjects that their own work can touch upon or impact. A little extra knowledge can go a long way.
There is not a lot more to say. For those who could benefit from this book it should be viewed as a clear “must-have”, since it can be a powerful saviour at a time of stress, trouble or just plain confusion. Clearly you may be able to muddle through with the help of Google; yet this book will give quality, professional and relevant advice instantaneously and that counts for a lot when the metaphorical chips are down.
