American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2013.32017

Through analyzing the value of the activities in the process of express delivery, the model of logistics value chain analysis (LVCA) of express enterprises is constructed. Using the model, the express enterprises can identify the key activities from the whole process of express delivery from senders to receivers, and those key activities constitute the logistics competitiveness of express enterprises. Then a model of logistics competitiveness is established, which includes four aspects: strategic location, network optimization, value-added services and performance measures. Those four aspects form the core logistics competitiveness for express enterprises.

The Analysis on Environmental Effect of Logistics Industry FDI  [PDF]
Yang Wang
iBusiness (IB) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2010.23038
Abstract: Whether it is positive or negative effect for FDI to the host environment, the theoretic problem exists in argument. The paper analyzes influence factors, mechanism, environmental regulations and so on of FDI environmental effect, use Spearman rank correlation coefficients to calculate, and believes that in the reality, the host country is the main factor of the environmental effect, based on the stage of China’s economic development, environmental carrying capacity and the advanced technologies and management concepts of TNC, to promote logistics FDI to play an positive environmental effect.
The Economic Growth Effect of Logistics Industry FDI Analysis  [PDF]
Yang Wang, Luqian Wang
iBusiness (IB) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2010.24049
Abstract: Based on the direction of the international FDI changed, from manufacturing to service industries, we should concern about the influence of the introduction of China’s logistics industry FDI to the national economy. The paper sets up regression model to examine logistics FDI and GDP in two aspects of time series and growth rate, we find that the logistics FDI reaches a high correlation with GDP, and logistics FDI is one of the major driving forces of economic development. Therefore, China should expand the introduction of logistics FDI, improve the quality of foreign investment, develop the positive economic growth effect of logistics FDI and promote the change of China’s economic growth pattern to ensure the development of China’s economy.
A Solution for Cross-docking Operations Planning, Scheduling and Coordination  [PDF]
Zhengping Li, Wei He, Cheng Hwee Sim, Chong Chuan Chen
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2012.52014
Abstract: Crossdocking is defined as an operational strategy that moves items through consolidation centers or cross docks without putting them into storage. As the need to move inventory faster increases, more logistics managers are turning to crossdocking but the ability to execute such strategy well depends on good planning, dynamic scheduling and coordina-tion. This paper introduces our research and development work on cross docking solution in three aspects: optimized planning on container grouping, clustering, sequencing and allocating containers to docks; real-time scheduling handles the dynamics of container arrivals and actual pallet transfers; and cross-docking coordination conducts real-time task assignment/sequencing and resource management to deal with dynamic changes.
Brazilian logistics: a time for transition
Bowersox, Donald J.;Closs, David J.;
Gest?o & Produ??o , 1997, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-530X1997000200002
Abstract: this article describes the logistics dimensions that world class firms use to differentiate their capabilities from their more average counterparts. these dimensions, which have been identified through international research, yield logistically excellent firms. the dimensions are documented and described. using these dimensions as a foundation, the article then develops the implications for brazilian logistics managers as they are required to transition to a world class level of logistical performance.

The article states the interaction relationship between logistics service and the road transport logistics infrastructure through theoretical method in this paper, which includes the support elements of the development of road logistics service, their interaction and the impetus of the coordinated development of both for the analysis of road transport logistics infrastructure and the coordinated development mechanism of the logistics service.
Large square baling and bale handling efficiency—A case study  [PDF]
Benjamin Kemmerer, Jude Liu
Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/as.2012.32020
Abstract: Large square baling is currently recognized as a high efficiency biomass harvesting system. Baling, bale collecting, and storing at a commercial wheat straw farm was studied as a typical large square bale harvesting system. Factors that affect large square bale production and handling logistics were quantified. Field operations of a large square baler, two bale handlers, and three bale trucks were observed in a full day field operation. System performance was analyzed and material capacities of all machines used in this system were determined based on field measurements. System limitations were quantified, and means to increase system efficiency or reduce production costs were discussed. Results showed that 340 wheat straw bales at a density of 116 kg·m-3 (wet matter) were made with a single large square baler during 8 h field operations. The number of bales produced was the system limitation when one baler, two bale handlers and three bale trucks were used. Adding a baler or reduce the number of operators can increase system efficiency. The large square baler used in this study had a material capacity of 13 Mg·h-1. Similar baling trials were conducted in a switchgrass field and results indicated that the baler had the same material capacity.
Containerization of Grain: Emergence of a New Supply Chain Market  [PDF]
Barry E. Prentice, Mark Hemmes
Journal of Transportation Technologies (JTTs) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jtts.2015.52006
Abstract: The containerized shipment of freight continues to grow rapidly. This development can be traced to a transformation of bulk and break-bulk service to containerization. Demand has been driven by opportunities to broaden logistical options as well as advantageous freight rates. Logisticians and policy makers are unsure how much more bulk traffic can be converted to containerization, but the trends are evident. Of particular interest is grain. Bulk grain handlers have successfully resisted the conversion of grain shipping to containerization, except on the North American-Asian traffic lanes and the Australian-Asian traffic lanes where growth has been significant. This paper reviews the theoretical case for grain containerization from a logistics perspective, followed by an examination of the current trends in the United States and Canada. Subsequently, the analysis considers the restrictions and resistance to the conversion of grain from bulk shipping to containerization.
