Abstract

This paper describes the design and initial findings of a research project into the criteria and applicability of sophisticated logistics operations in Asia Pacific companies. Eleven essential capabilities for effective supply chain management have been established: six process capabilities; two information technology capabilities; and, three organization capabilities. The research objective is to examine companies in a number of Asia Pacific countries. Preliminary results reported in this paper are from a sample of consumer packaged goods, multinational companies based in Australia. The conclusion at this formative stage of the project is that management commitment and resources are not being placed into those logistics capabilities that have the greatest impact on achievement of the organizations' strategic objectives.
