With increased globalisation and offshore sourcing, global supply chain
management is becoming an important issue for many businesses. Global
supply chain management usually involves a number of different countries, each
with its individual challenges that need to be resolved. The purpose of this paper
is to investigate the barriers faced by Alexandria Port, Egypt in operating an
efficient global business and the need to implement an e-business supply chain
model. This paper highlights the importance of enhancing the trust of all parties
involved in electronic business transactions. The paper analyses the current
global logistics operations within Alexandria Port and evaluates the need for an
e-business model with certain considerations for the local culture and
environment. The paper illustrates the main barriers faced by Alexandria Port
and the main benefits of implementing an e-business supply chain model. The
paper is evaluative, qualitative and inferential, supplemented by a case study of
Alexandria Port in Egypt.
