The company I work for, Derby Supply Chain Solutions, has recently posted a 3PL/supply chain glossary.

Our goal was to bring together a list of terms and define them to educate the general public about what we do and some of the terms they will encounter when using a Logistics service.

Some of the terms listed include:

ABC Inventory Control
Agile Manufacturing
AIB Certification
Backsourcing
Bill of Lading (BOL)
Business Process Outsourcing (BPO)
and more

You can find the glossary here: http://www.derbyllc.com/2012/02/03/logistics-glossary-of-supply-cha...

Anyone who would like to link it to their own site, please feel free!
