Logistics Strategies for Resource Supply Chains

Resources play a decisive role in the functioning of the economy. Raw materials are used in the energy industry, the food industry and are the source for every good used and produced by humans. Efficient and reliable logistics chains are essential for the availability of these resources and goods. Raw materials represent the beginning in each production chain, therefore the logistical optimization should find attention in the planning of these supply and demand chains. So far, however, logistics methods and strategies for raw materials have not been investigated. Instead, optimization of logistics chains is mostly implemented in the later production process. This paper explains the reasons for the lack of application of logistics strategies in raw materials logistics, shows a portfolio of logistics strategies and assigns possible logistics strategies to selected raw materials. In addition to the definition of raw materials and resources from the point of view of production and logistics, this work provides a basis for logistics strategies for raw materials.
