Presents the Concise Dictionary of Business Logistics (CDBL) published in Russia in 1995. The CDBL with its 900 entries is both an A to Z reference work and a Russian language terminological glossary. Most of the entries are thoroughly cross‐referenced to provide complete coverage in inventory control, traffic management, insurance of commercial risks, waste recycling, storage techniques, mathematical foundations of logistics, etc. All the terms defined in the CDBL have English equivalents which have been grouped into an alphabetically arranged index of English terms. Makes an attempt to define some of the fundamental concepts of logistics (material flow, logistical channel, logistical chain). Raises the problem of translation of the logistics terms unique to the command‐directed economies.
