The author of this article focuses on the role of technological innovations and partnering initiatives in the business logistics sector of Great Britain, as of March 2001. The theme of partnership, the condition of being associated with others in business of which the partners share risk and profit, has been an increasingly high-profile theme in the media, since 2000. There may be nothing new in partnering, but its prominence as a method of conducting business is enjoying much higher visibility. In a completely different way, as a by-product of increasing Internet use, the public is taking it for granted that contact with one element of business will automatically access another. This leaves professionals in the field with the powerful combination of improved technology which can enable better partnering, a growing consensus that business-to-business electronic process is essential, and a growing public profile for partnering issues in general.
