Abstract

The International Transport and Logistics Industry is growing in capability and complexity as a result of the demands that are being placed on it by the globalised economy. The volumes of work, product mix and the sheer scale of modern day operations is increasing daily, and this drives the requirement for more accurate and faster processes to be employed, to meet the demands of an ever increasing population and the need for instant gratification. The development of capabilities utilising the internet, movement and transfer of operational and manufacturing capacity, is resulting in higher customer demand for goods and services, not previously experienced.
