    Abstract

    Logistics aims to execute the delivery process productively, economically, securely and safely, taking into account the customers' requirements. As supply chains become more complex, they tend to be more difficult to control. Disturbances lead to delays, additional costs and product damages. A disturbance free supply chain is efficient, reliable, visible, resilient and economical. This demands for different types of management and security measures dependent on the characteristics of the supply chain.
