CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
1.1 Motivation of the Research
Nowadays, individual companies no longer compete with other stand-alone companies but supply chains compete against other supply chains (Christopher, 1997). The performance of the supply chain depends on the operations of all participants. The participants could include suppliers, manufacturers, carriers and retailers. If the participants work independently, supply chain costs and inefficiencies are likely to increase. The globalization of corporations has increased complexities and challenges in the supply chain. Strong competition, coupled with the factors stated, is motivating companies to build relationships with stake holders in the supply chain. As described by Christopher (1997), in such a network of participants and relationships, each partner adds value through specialization in an activity where it can provide differential advantage.

With this background, many companies are working to integrate their supply chain both up-stream and down-stream in order to improve visibility, reduce inventory and improve fulfillment. The companies are now targeting overall cost reductions in the complete value chain rather than in parts of the value chain. That is, they are shifting from local or silo optimization to global optimization of supply chains. This requires closer coordination and operational synergies amongst all the players in the value chain. 3PLs are increasingly playing a vital part in customers' supply chains which makes the study of relationships between 3PLs and customers important.

1.2 Research Aim and Research Focus
Based on the careful analysis about the nature of the third party logistics and manufacturing, combined with the actual case and related theories to do the research, we are expected to find out the relationship between the third party logistics and manufacturing. The main focus locates on the positive and negative impact when the third party logistics and manufacturing combine to come to use; also the problems when we analyze the study with China actual environment and the strategy that is expected to take are the important parts.

Research focus: the positive and negative impact of the third party logistics for manufacturing is the main focus, along with the implementation of the third party logistics in manufacturing in China.
