Abstract:There has been little conceptual work that comprehensively examines the changing role of the corporate transportation function in the modern business environment. Successful managers today require a broad view of transportation management’s role and responsibilities in an integrated supply chain. This paper clarifies the major transportation decision areas and introduces a framework that positions corporate transportation management within the overall integrated supply chain environment. The framework portrays initial transportation decisions as strategic, long-term decisions that focus on the overall supply chain transportation system. Once decisions are understood at this level, the decision-making scope becomes increasingly tactical in nature, focusing on operations that implement the overall system decisions.
