This dissertation presents a case study in the topic of customer supplier collaboration from a unique point of view the one of a Chinese 4PL business dealing with both European and Chinese customers. The dissertation reveals collaboration being used as an asset by the company as a mean to satisfy their customer requirements and build competitive advantage and how customer's expectations and requirements provide a driving force for it to happen.
