    The paper analyses if the collaborative networked organisations (CNO) concept can bring advantages in organising the international outbound logistics for SMEs. In the manufacturing domain, the European CNO research has identified benefits from using the concept in traditional supply chains, collaboration in various inbound networks and business ecosystems. Less focus has been on outbound logistics for delivering products and related service to customers at remote locations. The analysis is based on conducted company interviews. The interviewed companies have a good record of successful international operations. The used international delivery models are mapped into taxonomy of well-known outbound logistics models. The paper proposes a customer interface network model, based on the CNO concept to tackle problems encountered.
