THESE FUNCTIONS DETERMINE THE CHOICE OF SUPPLIER, THE SETTING UP OF SITES, THE SERVICE CONTRACT, THE ADMINISTRATION, THE COSTS OF TRANSPORT FOR SUPPLY AND THE DELIVERY. THE PAPER DEVELOPS THE VARIOUS POSSIBILITIES INVOLVED IN THE CHOICE BETWEEN THE TRANSPORT AVAILABLE (PUBLIC OR PRIVATE) IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA: COST, SPEED, TRANSPORT RELIABILITY, SAFETY. THE FINAL SECTION DEFINES THE PLACE OF LOGISTICS IN THE STRUCTURE OF THE ORGANISATION. SEE ALSO IRRD ABSTRACTS NOS 105303-4, 105225, 105227.
