THE ROLE OF THE CORPORATE STAFF TRANSPORTATION GROUP IN MEDIUM AND LARGE DIVERSIFIED MANUFACTURING ORGANIZATIONS

The Corporate Staff Transportation Group is not unlike other corporate-level staff groups but differs from the Physical Distribution Department prevalent in many organizations in that PDD is traditionally charged with the additional responsibilities of warehousing, inventory control and production scheduling. The CSTG is not similar to the plant transportation department in many aspects in that it performs a staff and not a line function. Plant-level personnel perform the daily plant traffic management functions. CSTG monitors the entire corporate/transportation operation, frequently advising and counseling the plant transportation managers and helping them solve problems as they occur or can be expected to occur. It is also a research group.
