Abstract

This paper analyses the interaction of two topics: Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Internet. Merging these two fields is a key area of concern for contemporary managers and researchers. They have realized that Internet can enhance SCM by making real time information available and enabling collaboration between trading partners. The aim of this paper is to define e-SCM, analyze how research in this area has evolved during the period 1995-2003 and identify some lines of further research. To do that a literature review in prestigious academic journals in Operations Management and Logistics has been conducted.

Keywords: E-supply chain management, internet, e-logistics, literature review
