Abstract

The paper articulates a mass customised framework, in the form of a route map, by which different tailored logistics solutions may be delivered. The aim is to provide a number of guiding principles for fully considering the integrative role of the transport function in logistics supply chains. The approach here is to formulate a framework based on a number of outputs from a three year research project. The research was a combination of conceptual and case based research. The research involved a number of industrial partners from the steel, food and construction sectors. The framework takes into account; transport flexibility types, vertical / horizontal collaboration, B2B e-business architectures and contingency based approach to logistics provision. The framework may act as a strategic route map by which members of the logistics network develop a tailored logistics strategy.
