ABSTRACT
The author of this article reports that, as of May 2000, a number of events organized, or sponsored, by the Institute of Logistics and Transport and its members were aimed toward examining the way forward for electronic business and electronic commerce. They have been very well supported and indicate an important role for professionals in the field of business logistics. The effective use of information lies in the heart of all that is done in logistics and transport. Electronic commerce is gaining momentum bringing both benefits, such as prompt and easy online ticket sales, but also challenges for planers and suppliers alike to accommodate the traffic generated by the demands of the individual. The author believes that now is the time for professionals in the field to lead in spreading the use of electronic business techniques into new fields within logistics and transport so that the most prompt and effective use is made of them.
