ABSTRACT
This article reports that since 1998, the policies team of the Institute of Logistics and Transport has been collaborating with Brian Noble, the Business Link company and the Small Business Center at the Durham University to investigate shortcomings in small- and medium-size (SME) transport and storage companies. The objective is to identify 'best practice' operations and services that could be transferred successfully to both provider and user SMEs. The research highlighted that SME transport and distribution companies react very differently to current events within their sectors and pressures in the development of their businesses. The research identified three key areas of best practice where SMEs could learn from other client management.
