Managing Risk When Outsourcing Advanced Logistics

Andersson, Dan and Norrman, Andreas LU (2003) 12th IPSERA conference p.377-391
Abstract
The paper describes and analyses both shipper’s and provider’s risk in outsourcing advanced logistics services. Also the risk management process (including risk analysis, risk assessment and risk management) of both companies are described and discussed. Conclusions are that risk management have been of increasing importance both during and after the outsourcing decision, and that both parties have developed their risk management processes and contingency plans due to the changed risk situation. Contracts play a vital role in risk management; but liability is an issue where there is a gap between the parties as well as in theory.
