In the following extract C G Baan answers the question, 'What is the role of logistics management and supply chain management in your country's distribution business?'

In the 1990s, the Netherlands mainly focused on transportation.

This was followed by more attention on central European distribution and value added services. More recently, there has been an increased focus within the distribution industry in the Netherlands on management of product flows, logistics concepts and information in the entire supply chain.
