9788763002189: Northern Lights in Logistics & Supply Chain Management

"Northern Lights in Logistics & Supply Chain Management" portrays the past, present and future research of the subject in the Nordic countries. The NOFOMA conference - a network of Nordic researchers within the field of Logistics and Supply Chain Management - has been a focal point in the contribution to the continuous improvement and further development of Nordic research. The network has also opened up for interaction with fellow researchers from other countries. There are sixteen chapters in the book that in its own way colours the Nordic rainbow of research within Logistics and Supply Chain Management. The chapters are structured in four themes: 1) Origins and strategic aspects; 2) Research approaches in the Nordic countries; 3) Advancement of distribution strategies and; 4) Emerging application areas of logistics and SCM. The chapters provide an understanding and, perhaps more importantly, consciousness for scholars that are part of this research environment: Where are we now, what have we been influenced by, and in what area are we able to provide positive impact? The aim of the book is also to contribute to increased visibility to fellow international scholars within Logistics and Supply Chain Management.

Review:

"In 1989, logistics thought leaders from across the Nordic countries came together to form the NOFOMA network. They agreed to hold an annual conference, to be rotated among the Nordic nations; and decided English would be the official language of the conference. Since English is (arguably) the international language of logistics scholarship, the Nordic countries have given the global community of logistics researchers a great gift: access to volumes of logistics knowledge, such as the fifteen chapters of Northern Lights in Logistics & Supply Chain Management. While being in English makes Nordic logistics research accessible, other qualities make these pieces worthy of reading, discussion and reference. The chapters are rigorous, inter-disciplinary, rich and insightful. Whether served with coffee or beer, this collection is sure to inspire thinking and action."Paul D. Larson, Professor, University of Manitoba, Asper School of Business, Canada "With this book the Nordic logistics research community tries to answer the question 'is there a distinctive Nordic approach to Logistics and SCM?' By doing so, the authors question logistics thinking itself and their collaborative journey and joint effort ends with a series of chapters that paints a rich, diverse and up-to-date panorama of logistics and SCM research. Whether you are Nordic or not, if you are interested in research in logistics and SCM, you will benefit from the work presented here. It discusses some cornerstones of our domain, and provides some milestones for further research. This book encourages European researchers to dare diverge from mainstream 'American way', and to explore new avenues in line with hot topics and key questions within European business."Nathalie Fabbe-Costes, Professor, Universite de la Mediterranee-Aix-Marseille II, France "The NOFOMA network started off about 20 years ago in a really small scale but has now gained improved credibility and substantial recognition in the global village of logistics research. The NOFOMA network has been instrumental in developing logistics research as well as developing logistics researchers. For many young PhD Students the NOFOMA conferences have been the first contact with the extended research community and thus served as a greenhouse for raising the next generation of scholars. Being aware of your research methodology and critically examining the current research paradigm constitutes the foundation for good research. This has in many aspects been the common denominator in the many NOFOMA conferences. The authors of this book make a synthesis of the research conducted in the Nordic countries compared with conventional mainstream research. As a result a Nordic approach to logistics research has crystallized, and that is what this book is about."Daniel Knudsen, Senior Project Manager, Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB, Sweden
