Here is an article about logistics, but I think it is different in the sense that it is not directly related to a company but to a country.
From my point of view, we have to understand logistics in a wider way, not just limiting our knowledge to business logistics..
This article is about the role that logistics plays in the development of a country, its international trade and its capacity to compete worldwide.
The article explains how logistics and supply chain management can be even more important than costs.
I think this importance is also because a good logistics helps reduce total costs, so rather than focusing only in how to reduce costs in order to compete, it is important to improve logistics system in order to achieve both cost reduction and efficiency in all the supply chain.
