Logistics and Supply Chain Specialists Australia

Imagine that you are logistics/supply chain specialists. You are employed by the mining company and charged with working out the logistics issues of getting locomotives and wagons to the track in Australia from an overseas supplier.

At this stage the project is in its planning phase. This means that a report should address the logistics management activities that must be taken into account in the planning phase. As it is the planning phase, there are many unknown factors and the project team wants to understand the feasibility of the project from different points of view, including logistics and supply chain.

The logistics specialists is expected to list the main logistics/supply chain activities that must be taken into account and ideally be able to make preliminary recommendations as to how key logistics challenges could be addressed. It would be natural to select one or two challenging key logistics areas and address them in more depth. The preliminary identification of the challenges is up to the logistics specialists. The logistics specialist is free to select the areas to address in more depth as well.

Imagine that the report is for the CEO and managers of other functions involved in the project. The CEO is no logistics specialists, but must be briefed as to what the logistics complexity and challenges are. The CEO does not expect detailed solutions to all problems at this stage, but requires and overview together with a more depth focus one or two important areas that the logistics specialist find important to inform the CEO about. If you have aides to solutions he is more than happy to hear about them too. The CEO requires the information shortly, so he has asked the logistics specialists not to deliver a report of more than 2500 words maximum.
