Kille, Tarryn and Bates, Paul R. and Lee, Seung Yong, eds. (2019) Unmanned aerial vehicles in civilian logistics and supply chain management. Advances in Logistics, Operations and Management Science. IGI Publishing (IGI Global), Hershey, United States of America. ISBN 9781522579007


Abstract

Many industries have begun to recognize the potential support that unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) offer, and this is no less true for the commercial sector. Current research on this field is narrowly focused on technological development to improve the functionality of delivery and endurance of the drone delivery in logistics, as well as on regulatory challenges posed by such operations. There is a need for further attention to be applied to operational and integration challenges associated with UAVs.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in Civilian Logistics and Supply Chain Management is a collection of innovative research that investigates the opportunities and challenges for the use of UAVs in logistics and supply chain management with a specific aim to focus on the multifaceted impact of drone delivery. While highlighting topics including non-military operations, public management, and safety culture, this book is ideally designed for government administrators, managers, industry professionals, researchers, and students.
