When a company creates a logistics strategy it is defining the service levels at which its logistics operation is most cost effectiveness. Due to constantly changing and evolving supply chains, a company may develop a number of logistics strategies for specific product lines, specifically for countries or for specific customers. To be able to respond to a flexible supply chain, companies should develop and implement a formal logistics strategy. This will allow a company to identify the impact of imminent changes and make organisational or functional changes to ensure service levels are maintained.
