Abstract

Provides information relating to the experiences of Australian firms using third party logistics services (outsourcing of logistics functions being a business dynamic of growing importance in Australia). Presents conclusions from a survey showing that many of Australia’s largest firms utilize the services of contract logistics providers and some other firms are considering doing so. Provides insights in planning for implementation, for example, the need to educate the third party logistics services provider about the firm’s requirements and also information for the providers of the services.
