Abstract: The subject matter of this paper focuses on the services provided by Global Logistics Service Providers (GLSPs) and how these can present alternatives to multinational companies in managing their logistics needs. The study first looks at how logistics have developed over time from a supplementary role to becoming a vital contributor in supporting strategic initiatives of multinational companies. This is made possible by the globalisation of businesses. In today's context, the constant search for competitive advantage forces companies to locate warehouses and production facilities wherever opportunities arise. In supporting this need, companies are likely to require the specialised services of GLSPs.
