Studies several local and international logistics firms in Singapore and elsewhere as a way of developing a better understanding of their difficulties and reasons for success. Illustrates why certain larger companies which have the capability to develop more sophisticated information and computer systems do not; instead, they chose to rely on more flexible systems which allow for learning and adaptation.
