Logistics is now looked upon as a key corporate leverage point for simultaneously increasing shareholder and customer value. Unfortunately, the formal links between logistics performance, cost, and value are not yet well defined.

We define the link between logistics performance, cost, and shareholder value; define a full and complementary set of logistics performance benchmarks; and demonstrate how to use logistics performance gap analysis to justify new logistics initiatives.
