When a company creates a logistics strategy, it defines the service levels where its logistics operation is the most cost effective. Due to constantly changing and evolving supply chains, a company may develop a number of logistics strategies for specific product lines, especially for countries or for specific customers. To be able to respond to a flexible supply chain, companies need to develop and implement a formal logistics strategy allowing them to identify the impact of imminent changes in order to make organizational or functional changes ensuring service levels are maintained.
