L'influence des stratégies logistiques sur l'ancrage territorial des activités : contribution à une approche basée sur l'identification et l'interprétation de formes résiliaires dans un cadre géographique de proximité

Abstract : Today logistics is an integral part of companies' strategic reflection. However the term "Logistics" tends to progressively vanish in favour of the notion of "Supply Chain" reinforcing an inter-organizational approach of the coordination of flows. A more cooperative attitude within the supply chain is evidence of the disappearance of the borders between companies and reveals the rise of logistical networks with the varied characteristics. This doctoral work is an attempt to distinguish the nature and functioning of the networks together with their impact on the territorial rise ans establishment of logistical activities. In order to answer this question, the research endeavours to identify and interpret the multiple networking forms in a local geographical frame symbolized by the Lorraine Region. A summary of the integrating and cooperative nature of logistics associated with an analysis of the localization strategies of this type of activity reveal the pertinence of the notion of network to characterize the organizational changes that these strategies have undergone. Contributions of Management Sciences and of other disciplines (economics and sociology) allow to uphold a general theoretical explanation of the network. The introduction of the concept of proximity completes this integrating frame by incorporating the space and time dimensions lacking from the preceding contributions and yet indispensable to the study of logistical networking structures and to the interpretation of their influence on the companies' setting-up and implanting. A qualitative analysis of several private and public logistical actors from the Lorraine Region reinforces the research proposals and gives prominence to a plurality of logistical networks based on different combinations of proximity methods. The research concludes that these types of organization have a varying influence on the establishment of the actors. Finally, this work provides a few ideas and recommendations that can serve a regional development policy of logistical activities.
