1、In a broad sense, it is the output of the entire logistics effort; That is, customer service and some resulting level of satisfaction are what the logistics system ultimately provides the buyers.
     2、Demand forecasting aims at the need for accurate information on future customer needs so that the logistics system can assure the right products and/or services are available to meet those requirements.
     3、In addition,the move away from local sourcing in favor of global buying has complicated this entire process significantly in recent years.
     4、Most logistics systems are ill equipped to handle product movement in a reverse channel. In many industries consumers return products for warranty repair, replacement, or recycling.
     多数物流系统处理反向流动的货物时比较费力。在许多行业,顾客退货是为了要 求保修、更换或重新加工货物。
     5、Formerly, logistics was a fragmented and often uncoordinated set of activities spread throughout various organizational functions with each individual function having its budget and of priorities and measurements.
     6、With the emergence of business process re-engineering(BRP) in the early 1990s, the relationship between logistics and related functions was redefined. BRP identifies a series of core processes that cut across traditional functional boundaries and are essentially customer-oriented. Effective management of these requires the development of new working relationships between function and the formation of more cross-functional teams.
     7、There is a saying that “what gets measured, gets managed”, implying that it is through the choice of performance measurement that behavior is determined.
     8、Logistics system, by functions of transportation, storage and other associated activities, creates time and place utility for products.
     9、The primary goal is to provide third-party logistics providers to reduce the overall logistics costs and improve customer service levels.
     10、Logistics is an important part of the process of transport or the flow of goods from origin to consumption.
     11、The savings realized on minimum cost procurement have not been worth the cost of customer dissatisfaction due to quality problem.
     12、The purpose or function of transportation is to serve as a connecting link between the separated units within a firm’s own organization (such as between plants and warehouses) and between units of the firm and units of other firms and individuals (such as supplies and customers).
     13、The efficient transportation network has made possible the lowering of the level of safety stock with its resultant reduction in inventory carrying cost.
     14、Victory is the beautiful, bright colored flower. Transport is the stem without which it could never have blossomed.
     15、A significant reason for such growth is that business dealings are shifting from transactional-based strategies to relationship based alliances such as partnerships.
     16、A warehousing/distribution operation that runs at a higher rate of efficiency and cost-effectiveness almost without your involvement, freeing you to focus on strategic planning rather than tied down in day-to-day operation uncertainty.
     17、A well-run supply chain compresses time, reduces expensive distribution processes as well as costly buffer inventories.
     18、Any business that refuses to consider outsourcing is at the risk of losing its competitive advantages or the opportunity to create a competitive advantage offered by third-party logistics providers.
     19、Miscommunications and service failures are leading to the deterioration of many business alliances and partnerships.
     20、When selecting a 3PL provider there are key issues that must be addressed with respect to confidentiality, performance, subcontractors, reporting, mediation, arbitration & escape, and especially, rates.
     21、Also services guarantees and who will be monitoring the performance reliability of the provider are critical elements of any 3PL contract.
     22、In their search for cost savings and increased services, companies are requesting new methods of operations and many are demanding 3PL providers perform more sophisticated operations than were initially outlined.
     23、Global logistics must accommodate operations in a variety of different national, political, and economic settings while also dealing with increased uncertainties associated with the distance, demand, diversity, and documentation of international commerce.
     24、From a logistics perspective, language differences dramatically increase complexity since a product is limited to a specific country once it is language-customized.
     25、Benchmarking management control systems can identify processes where a firm lags behind competitors while external customer service audits may identify opportunities for selective, customer-focused programs.
     26、Customers perceive information about order status, product availability, delivery schedule, shipment tracking and invoices as necessary elements of total customer service.
     27、A manufacturer may market the product through company owned retail outlets and may also distribute through a network of separately owned distribution and retail outlets.
     28、Changing the location and the number of warehouses changes transportation costs in unanticipated and complex ways.
     29、The growing variety of proposals from shipping and logistic companies is forcing their customers to take hard decisions on outsourcing the whole logistics process which is now becoming popular as 4PL(Fourth Party Logistics).
     30、E-business are ensuring that their package carries participate fully in the just-in-time (JIT) process to ensure minimum inventory levels.
     31、Generally, SCM consists of a simplified supply chain network structure, the information and product flows, and the key supply chain business processes penetrating functional silos within the company and the various corporate silos across the supply chain.
     32、The Internet, operating at Web speed, has become an economical way to conduct transactions and launched the potential of business-to-business (B2B) consumer direct E-distribution.
     33、The frequent occurrence of service failures that characterized the past is increasingly being replaced by a growing managerial commitment to zero defect or what is commonly called six-sigma performance.
     34、Real-time Logistics Event Management: The need for accurate and timely management of information in order to maintain on-time deliveries, reduce inventory levels and ensure that right product is in the right place at the right time.
     35、As the buyer processes the purchase order ,the PO information is sent by line item to a standards based hosted platform.
     36、The ability for logistics managers to gain visibility into the buyer’s purchase order and compare that data to the pre-shipment information from all suppliers through exception or event management is of significant value to this market. It takes a truly proactive approach to managing logistics. What comes out of this process is a significant improvement in the flow of goods to the customer.
     37、Following the renovation of maritime transport with the attendant advantages of large carrying capacity, speedier movement and fewer hands required, the saving achieved in both labor and time was apparent.
     随着海运革新所带来的运能的提高、运输的快速和人手需求的减少,在节约劳动力和时间上是显而易见的。 38、The lash system is another innovation which is closely related to containerization in the mechanized handling of water borne cargo.
     39、Such shipments are entrusted to the carriers as needed whereupon bills of lading covering the shipments are issued by the carriers against payment of freight according to tariff rates either in advance or on delivery of the shipments at destination.
     40、For goods of high unit value, shippers usually pay extra charges to the shipping line at the ad valorem rate on f.o.b. value, in addition to the freight charges, which is higher than that on a weight basis; while shipping by air, no extra charges at the ad valorem rate is collected by airline, unless there is a declared value of the cargo and valuation charge is paid for it, in order to protect against possible loss or damage.
     41、A complex code system is adopted to facilitate identifying the applicable freight rate to a particular consignment of goods.
     42、Specific commodity rates are usually made in response to demands or applications of the shippers whose business involve regular transportation of the same specific commodities on a certain route, or based on the field research which shows the necessity of developing traffic between certain areas. 特殊商品的费率是根据托运人的要求或请求来制定的。该托运人的业务通常涉及同一特定商品在某条路线上定期运送。(特殊商品的费率)或是基于对在一定区域内开辟运输服务的必要性的实地调查研究而定。
     43、These systems must fulfill economic and social expectations whilst ensuring wider environmental, resource efficiency and safety objectives.
     44、The requirement now is for step-change improvements in high-speed product development, leading to significant improvements in pro
    duct life-cycle-costs, time-to-market, reliability, maintainability and safety of operation. 在高速列车的研发中,目前需要的是渐进式改良,以大幅降低使用周期的成本,缩短推向市场的时间,提高其可靠性、可维护性和操作的安全性。
     45、Enhanced fleet management and improved passenger and freight logistics will also have a significant impact on direct operating costs and quality of customer service, thus marking a crucial contribution towards the renewal of the railway.
     46、Estimating delivery times and maintaining schedules becomes difficult with resultant risks to meeting on-time delivery targets.
     47、The first carrier, the last carrier and the actual carrier under whom the damage happened, may be held liable for damage, boss or delay of the goods.
     48、One of the Convention’s main attributes is the liability regime imposed on the carrier.
     49、The proof that a damage, loss or delay of the goods took place while in transit will conclude the claimant’s burden of proof.
     50、Exceptionally, when damage is either caused by the claimant or by an inherent vice of the goods, the latter will be required to prove the carrier’s fault.
     51、Action is also limited by a one-year period with a possibility of extension to three years in the case of willful misconduct of the carrier.
