Logistics and Supply Chains in Emerging Markets

Emerging Markets hold the key to the development of the global logistics industry over the next twenty years. Whilst developed economies struggle to come to terms with huge levels of debt, newly industrialized markets are showing strong growth prospects as manufacturers and investors look at low cost production locations. This, in turn, has led to urbanizations and the development of more affluent middle classes in regions such as Africa, Latin America and Asia Pacific.

In this unique book, Manners-Bell considers key trends affecting development of emerging markets; the social economic and political context; the reasons behind their integration within the global trading economy; the main challenges (security, corruption, transport infrastructure).
