The special interest groups (SIG) of the Institute of Logistics and Transport has decided, as a result of a series of electronic commerce breakfast meetings during 2000, that the implications of the Internet on logistics/supply-chain management will be the focus for 2001. The members of the SIG have recognized that electronic commerce, whether business-to-business or business-to-consumer, mean that logisticians are having to address new issues and develop new strategies. Key to the development and implementation of successful strategies is the skills base of the logistics professionals of today and tomorrow. As a result, the first breakfast meeting, which will be held on March 15, 2001, will debate on whether or not electronic commerce has an impact on human resources management. The meeting will be led by Simon Brookfield and Sarah Trowbridge.
