The market for logistics services in Europe is undergoing unprecedented change. Not only is it being affected by world‐ scale developments, such as the globalization of manufacturing industry and the genesis of internationalisation in retailing, but there are major impacts within Europe itself. Numbered amongst these are; the effects of 1992 and the Single European Market on logistics users (e.g. manufacturers and retailers); deregulation of international road haulage within the European Community (EC) deregulation of domestic road haulage within many EC countries: increased specialisation of service for road freight companies; and the adoption of logistics concepts to give a unified view of the flow of goods from input sources to the delivery of final products to customers. To speak of a coming revolution in European logistics would not be overstating the case.
