Teleological assumptions in the process of identification and evaluation of best logistics practices

Mirosław Chaberek , Cezary Mańkowski


Problem of identification and evaluation of best logistics practices is not a new one, however it still causes a controversy on the methods of logistics practices assessment. Thus, the authors, based on the literature review, case study and their long experience at the area of logistics research decided to put under the readers critique their conception of teleological assumptions, based on 5R logistics aims (objectives, purposes) criteria, which can be used for the process of identification and evaluation of best logistics practices. The added value of this conception is expressed at a thesis (and developed at this paper) that the set of logistics aims can be understood, specified, or even parameterized, only in relation to the primary process (production, trade, service), which determines the right resource, the right quantity, the right location, the right time and the right cost (5R) towards its logistics support process.
