Managing Commodity Price Risk: A Supply Chain Perspective provides a range of approaches organizations can implement and adapt for assessing, forecasting, and managing commodity price volatility and reducing financial risk exposure associated with purchased goods and services. Understanding and managing commodity price risk is important for organizations and supply chain professionals due to the significant direct financial effects price volatility has on profitability, organizational cash flow, the ability to competitively price products, new product design, buyer–supplier relationships, and the negotiation process.

With the inclusion of clear examples of best practice and bona fide case studies, as well as invaluable contributions from an international team of experts, Container Logistics is an essential guide for supply chain managers and shippers, as well as academics and industry professionals working in the maritime business.

The field of logistics continues to develop at a remarkable pace. Until recently, logistics was barely considered in long-term plans of even major companies, but its strategic role is now recognised and it lies at the heart of long-term plans in almost every business. There are many reasons for this change: communications and information technology are offering new opportunities; world trade is growing; competition is forcing operations to adopt new practices and become evermore efficient; and there is increasing concern for the environment. Add to this the increased emphasis on consumer satisfaction, flexible operations and time compression, and it becomes clear why it is so important to get logistics right. Now in its 7th edition, edited by Stephen Rinsler and Donald Waters, Global Logistics has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the latest trends, best practices, and cutting-edge thinking on global logistics. This leading title provides guidance on important topics, including agile supply chains, IT, sustainability and performance management, collaboration, outsourcing and humanitarian logistics. The 7th edition of Global Logistics provides completely new chapters on supply chain trends and strategies, fulfilling customer needs, and supply chain vulnerability. Assessing real-world developments across the globe, there are also dedicated new chapters on China and Central and Eastern Europe. This multi-contributed edition serves as a forum for a range of acknowledged sector specialists to discuss key logistics issues and share their authoritative views. The new edition introduces new contributors, including leading thinkers from international universities and businesses (UK, USA, France, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Hong Kong). Global Logistics is an invaluable source of guidance and practical advice for students, managers and practitioners alike, who will find it an essential text they can refer to again and again.

This book is the first to bring an economics perspective in a rigorous manner to complex decision-making in the management of supply chains. It provides the foundations for the modeling of the interrelationships among decision-makers in supply chains, ranging from manufacturers, distributors, and retailers, to the consumers, assuming individualized behavior. The models handle both competition and cooperation and provide the resulting product flows and prices in the chains. A unique network economics perspective is brought to the issue, setting the book apart from the numerous management and operations research volumes available. After an introduction of the theoretical foundations, the book then extends and applies the theory to energy supply chains in the form of electric power generation and distribution networks. The relationships between electric power supply chains and transportation networks are vividly captured through theoretical results and the solution of practical examples. The book then explores environmental supply chain and financial networks with intermediation, which are interpreted as supply chains and also solved as such. Throughout, the underlying theme is that of transportation networks and how the relationships between supply chain networks and the more established theory of transportation network equilibria can be applied and exploited for logistic-type applications. Economists and transportation researchers will find the book's theory and applications of great interest. Operations researchers and management scientists as well as practitioners in business logistics will be interested in the book's methodological and practical tools.
