The logistics service sector is faced with a growing complexity which needs to be handled by cooperating logistics providers aligning their services in a network. This paper introduces the Logistics Service Engineering and Management platform supporting the Fourth Party Logistics Provider business model that aims at establishing a coordinator of such a network. Hence the idea to employ the service oriented design paradigm at the software and at the business level along with the main features of the platform is presented. Furthermore the basic architecture is explained and a closer look at some implementation details is presented.
