Supply chain management (SCM) remains an important topic among logistics managers, researchers and educators. This paper opens by describing four unique perspectives on the relationship between logistics and SCM. Next, the results of an international survey of logistics/SCM experts are reported. Over 200 questionnaires were faxed to leading logistics educators in North America, Europe, South America and Asia. Based on these experts' perceptions, cluster analysis confirms the existence of the four perspectives on logistics versus SCM--relabelling, traditionalist, unionist and inter-sectionist. The paper closes with a discussion on implications of the four perspectives for educators, researchers and practitioners.
