Abstract:Discusses the growth of inter-firm logistics networks. Inter-firm network denotes a complex arrangement of reciprocal, cooperative rather than competitive, relationships between legally independent but economically interdependent firms. Asserts that the organisation of the inter-firm logistics network is influenced by the organisation of the network itself. Analyses the respective requirements of the inter-organisational logistics system. Focuses on the question of which specific logistics-related capabilities firms operating in production networks have to develop depending on the respective network type. Presents a qualitative study of a production network of a German car manufacturer to identify organisational capabilities and describe possible systemic development.
