Logistics is a $700 billion industry in the USA and is the second largest employer of college graduates. Logistics costs account for nearly 30% of the sales dollar, and logistics activities are essential to satisfying the ever- changing customer demand in terms of variety and availability. Today the need for cutting edge, sophisticated logistics practices has never been greater. This unique text is squarely focused on the key activities within the functional areas of logistics and transportation, with emphasis placed on the quantitative treatment of the design and planning issues in logistics. In scope, Logistics and Transportation comprehensively covers almost all the elements of the supply chain. Moreover, it includes a number of topics that are generally not covered by most popular logistics texts. These include functional areas such as: vendor selection, inventory models with inventory costs, advanced transportation models, logistics metrics, and latest trends in logistics. The text is primarily designed for use in the classroom by senior undergraduate and graduate-level students. It is also a useful resource for practicing transportation and logistics professionals.

Rejected by his wife Alice, day trader and suburban father Jack Smith jumps at the chance to manage a yuppie condominium in Seattle, light-years from the burbs. A melange of colorful characters welcomes him and fortune smiles with an unanticipated promise of a rebound romance. Suddenly it all comes unraveled with the first in a series of murders, creating fear and suspicion. Bombastic brainstorming sessions, full of innuendo based less on evidence than clashing personalities, follow. Who will be next? Wild speculations become absurd with each new killing. Clearly this close-knit group is in someone's crosshairs. Is the perp mad or cunning? Is there something one or all of them did to set him or her off? Pondering this question Jack is tormented with guilt over the first murder. On the edge of sanity he contemplates flight-or would Alice, grown distant in her new life, take him back? What about the safety of his family if some nut has it in for him? What price must these yuppie homeowners pay before the killer is caught? Or...! Will this one simply go away like some serial killers from the past? Not likely!"
