Abstract

In companies today, there is a strong demand for performance measures for logistics. Yet, current methods do not provide satisfactory solutions. Academia, too, provides only few suggestions; and the approaches vary greatly. Possible reasons for this clear deficit include the highly heterogeneous and complex spectrum of logistics activities, which makes the development of consistent performance measures difficult, as well as the relatively underdeveloped theory concerning the creation of performance measures in general. The creation of performance measures for logistics thus requires both the implementation of indicators into a company’s management system and the identification of logistics process characteristics that are relevant for management.
