Modern logistics includes operative logistics, analytical logistics and administration of logistic networks. crucial activity of operative logistics is the effective offer of required items on the correct position in the correct time. initiatives of analytical logistics are designing optimum networks and platforms, constructing thoughts for making plans, scheduling and operation, and organizing effective order and function procedures. Logistic administration plans, implements and operates logistic networks and schedules orders, shares and assets.
This reference-book bargains a different survey of contemporary logistics. It comprises confirmed thoughts, principles and instruments for the answer of a large number of logistic difficulties. The analytically derived algorithms and formulation can be utilized for the computer-based making plans of logistic structures and for the dynamic scheduling of orders and assets in provide networks. they permit major advancements of functionality, caliber and prices. Their program is confirmed by means of numerous examples from undefined, exchange and repair companies.
Apart from corrections and alterations the second one variation features a new bankruptcy on maritime logistics. It demonstrates how the tools of this booklet can be utilized to resolve complicated logistic difficulties of functional relevance for economic system, society and atmosphere.
The booklet is written for execs, scientists, academics and graduate scholars. an in depth index makes it a dictionary of contemporary logistics.

Their potential can only be captured within large logistic centers (see Chaps. 16, 19 and 21). Another possibility of efficient consolidation of functions is the transfer of order picking from regional warehouses or from the delivering vehicles to a logistic center. Normally, the general rule holds: • The costs of internal logistics decrease with the number of logistic centers. The extent of cost savings by consolidation of functions in logistic centers varies from case to case. In the above example, the internal logistic costs, which amount here to 50–60% of the total logistic costs, were reduced by 15% by consolidating 28 1 Tasks and Aspects of Modern Logistics the functions from 10 regional warehouses to 2 logistic centers.
By 2 logistic centers instead of 10 regional warehouses, inventory capital and interest expenses are reduced by 20%. The costs for running the two logistic centers further decrease by the smaller space needed for the stock, by the increased inventory turnover and by other consolidation effects such as the lower specific costs of an automatic high bay store. 11) has the following positive effects: • • • • • • • • • • increased efficiency of operations and administration applicability of more efficient technique reduced share of partly filled load units and storage units use of standard load units with optimal dimensions decreasing handling costs lower costs due to the reduced number of storeplaces chances to balance and compensate peaks of demand opportunity to operate facilities round-the-clock reduced administration costs by modern IT lower total overhead costs for the smaller number of locations The most interesting contributions to the savings are the decreasing investment with increasing storage capacity and the reduction of handling cost rates with increasing turnover.

Depending on whether the operations take place in operative or administrative stations and whether they refer to tangible or intangible objects, a performance chain is called logistic chain, information chain or order chain (see Fig.
