LE ROLE DES PRESTATAIRES LOGISTIQUES EN EUROPE - INTEGRATION DES CHAINES ET ALLIANCES LOGISTIQUES

Abstract : Logistics, a set of physical operations and a set of methods for managing physical and informational flows, is one of the main issues concerning firms in the context of supply chains. What are customers' practices and reasons for the externalisation or internalisation of logistics? What kind of ‘service relationship' is set up to better share logistics management between customers and providers? How do logistics service providers organize themselves in order to satisfy the various constraints and needs of the supply chain?
We will concentrate our attention on the role of logistics providers as organisers or operators of material and information flows. With this purpose, the present contribution is discussed around two complementary subjects, inspired from two different disciplinary fields, industrial economics and business management.
The first subject concerns the analysis of transport and logistics industry on the European scale, in response to the evolutions of production and distribution systems. However, the necessity to capture some specific features in the European model leads us to develop the same analysis on a national scale. In this respect, we have carried out an original survey on the strategic behaviour of logistics service providers acting in the Italian context.
The second subject belongs to the set of management studies concerning inter-organisational theories. It deals with the analysis of coordination modes between customers and logistics providers. This approach is to be interpreted as an analysis of the links between the productive systems and the logistical and transport organization. It is focussed on the identification of relationships and related mechanisms of coordination between the actors in order to specify the role of logistics providers in the logistics management process.
