Congratulations on completing this week and thank you for joining us for this first week of Principles of Global Logistics Management.

This week, we’ve examined the difference between logistics and supply chains, and how they interact. Additionally, we explored the importance of physical characteristics and how they affect the design of global distribution networks.

Next week, we’ll analyse the forces that influence globalisation and recognise trade flows and international trading blocs. We’ll also critically evaluate the problems of globalisation.
