|Title:||Logistics coordination in vendor-buyer systems.||Authors:||Wang, Ye Xin.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Industrial engineering::Engineering logistics||Issue Date:||2007||Source:||Wang, Y.

Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||Nowadays, the global market and economy have made it difficult for companies to compete solely as individual entities. Many companies have realized the potential for achieving a competitive advantage through effectively coordinating different logistics participants in their supply chains. In the meanwhile, information technology and outsourcing have enabled companies to successfully operate a collaborative supply chain, in which each logistics participant focuses on only a few key strategic activities. In this dissertation, we deal with the logistics coordination issues in two distinct vendorbuyer systems, where the vendor and buyer may represent any two upstream-downstream logistics participants that are independently managed, whether they belong to different companies or simply behave as such. For each vendor-buyer system studied, we investigate how the two parties can cooperate with each other in making decisions to increase both the system and the individual profitability.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/12883||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
