Abstract

Describes the elements of a successful logistics partnership. Looks at what can cause failure and questions whether the benefits of a logistics partnership are worth the effort required. Concludes that strategic alliances are increasingly becoming a matter of survival, not merely a matter of competitive advantage. Refers to the example of the long‐term relationship between Kimberly‐Clark Corporation and Interamerican group’s Tricor Warehousing, Inc.
