Abstract

Logistics barriers are rapidly becoming critical issues of international operations and global procurement. To better understand logistics problems in an international production base and in a potentially huge market such as China, we employ empirical analysis and qualitative data collected via interview in this study. The findings show that quality, cost, and delayed delivery are the critical challenges in procurement from China. In fact, they are seriously affected by logistics problems. Also, the logistics flow within China is where most problems regarding logistics arise in the entire business operation. The study also reveals that a rise in logistics costs, local labor costs, and a shortage of human resources are becoming new concerns in procurement from the Chinese Market.
