Hardbound. Rapid developments in information technology have many implications for the organisation and management of transport and logistics. Information technology has transcended the borders of the individual firm. Management control and decision making throughout the supply chain has therefore become an important focus of attention for management and for academia. Information systems are needed which can support that control and decision making. The 20 specially commissioned chapters presented here study applications of information systems to logistics and transportation systems. Divided into two complementary sections, "Research Directions" and "Perspectives from Practice", this original and current work will be of value both to researchers and to practitioners at the interface of these dynamic and growing fields.
