The Journal of Transport and Supply Chain Management (JTSCM) is a highly relevant scholarly research journal focusing on all aspects related to the organisational value chain across local and global departments, processes and continents in today’s highly competitive markets. The journal seeks to understand management of the flow of goods and services, which forms part of the design, planning (including transport planning), execution, control and monitoring of supply chain activities.
The objective of these activities should be towards the creation of net value, build a competitive infrastructure, leverage worldwide logistics, synchronise supply with demand and measure performance globally. As such, the journal endeavours to serve as a platform for refreshingly new and invigorating approaches to, and findings of, research relating to transport management, logistics and associated disciplines. Topics of interest are, but in no means limited to:
- traffic and transportation (operations, policy, planning)
- customer service
- inventory management, procurement, packaging, materials handling
- reverse logistics, demand forecasting
- distribution communications and information technology.
The journal provides researched discourse on the value chain (including transport activities) which can inform policy-makers and legislative stakeholders on how to develop more effective policies, programs and applied planning to reduce loss in revenue.
