Abstract

Purpose: This research examines the design and governance of a ‘logistics city’ which exists to provide logistic and business services to manufacturers, distributors and transport companies in an international supply chain. It considers how the governing body of such a city will help the players involved to achieve their business objectives. A logistics city is defined as a concentrated area attached to a seaport and other cargo transport modes.
