Abstract

The worldwide market opening and globalization of supply chains demand a series of structural changes where logistics plays a strategic role. Customers evaluate the quality of the product, its added value and its availability in time and form, which involves making processes more efficient. Some experts have proposed logistic management models to elevate competitiveness in the market. Some of these models are ambitious for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) due to their informal structure and a lack of technical knowledge. Other models make indirect reference to the internal information flows, including a whole disintegration of the system because of the interrelation among the different areas. SMEs represent 4.2% of enterprises existing in Mexico, generate 31.5% of employment and contribute to the Gross Domestic Product. It is important to reinforce their competitive position in the market. Some 85.9 percent of the textile industry in Mexico is SMEs. In this descriptive investigation, we design a logistic management model for textile SMEs.
