Abstract

For the logistics manager whose experience deals only with domestic commerce, both the documentation and the insurance requirements of international movements will be an additional challenge. Indeed, Gray and Davies even used the expression “international logistics” to mean “a system in which documentation flows are as much a part of the main logistical flow as flows of product.”1
