Outlines cost benefits for information system implementation using electronic data interchange as the enabling tool.

Examines two business re‐design strategies, namely lead time reduction via information systems implementation and information integration in the form of actual customer demand fed forward to all supply chain members. Highlights global integrated logistics information systems and describes their role in overall supply chain system optimization.
