Special issue: Logistics systems design in Latin America

Miguel Gaston Cedillo Campos, Juan Carlos Villa

Abstract


Logistics systems have a strategic importance for Latin American competitiveness. During the last decades, geographical dispersion of industrial and service processes supported by logistics progresses allowed Latin American companies to be part of the global value chains.

Economic difficulties in the Latin American region and the increasing protectionism and nationalism in some developed countries have led to uncertainty and greater interest to develop regional markets and to strengthen a more diverse market base.

Under this context, this Special Issue of the Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management (JIEM) gathers nine significant contributions, which from a Latin American approach, enhance the logistics systems body of knowledge focused on emerging markets.
