International Journal of Logistics: Research and Applications Vol. 7, No. 1, March 2004 Logistics Versus Supply Chain Management: An International Survey PAUL D. LARSON 1 * & ARNI HALLDORSSON 2 1 Iowa State University, College of Business, USA & 2 Copenhagen Business School, Department of Operations Management, Solbjerg Plads 3, DK-2000, Frederiksberg, Denmark ABSTRACT Supply chain management (SCM) remains an important topic among logistics managers, researchers and educators. This paper opens by describing four unique perspectives on the relationship between logistics and SCM. Next, the results of an international survey of logistics = SCM experts are reported. Over 200 questionnaires were faxed to leading logistics educators in North America, Europe, South America and Asia. Based on these experts’ perceptions, cluster analysis confirms the existence of the four perspectives on logistics versus SCM relabelling, traditionalist, unionist and inter- sectionist. The paper closes with a discussion on implications of the four perspectives for educators, researchers and practitioners. Introduction For many logistics educators, researchers and practitioners, supply chain management (SCM) has been the ‘‘grande passion’’ of recent times. Academic journals have been launched (e.g. Supply Chain Management: An International Journal ) or renamed (e.g. Journal of Supply Chain Management ), SCM degree and certificate programmes have been created, professors and managers have been retitled, and research interests have shifted toward SCM. But, LaLonde (1997) asked: ‘‘Does supply chain management really exist?’’ Other authors caution that SCM may become just another management fad (Burgess, 1998), or even a ‘‘parochial arena * Correspondence: Paul D.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
