This glossary is for experienced professionals in supply chain software, operations, logistics, or warehousing. There are thousands of acronyms ("industry buzzwords") that exist today. This handbook takes the mystery out of those and explains what they mean!

This new glossary will greatly help new logistics professionals go faster on the learning curve. Both new & experienced professionals are challenged to know the many industry terms used in warehousing, transportation, computers, EDI, government, manufacturing, standards, business, and with various organizations.

This glossary is a multi-industry glossary and helps the system integrators, IT staff, consultants, executives, new users, and expert users - as it targets 'Supply Chain Professionals' as the primary audience."
