Abstract: Examines the logistics environment and the manufacturing logistics strategy in Hong Kong, based on six case studies. The manufacturing structure of Hong Kong industry is identified. The following logistics strategies adopted by Hong Kong companies are discussed: market intelligence, sourcing, front‐end activities, manufacturing distribution, back‐end activities, vertical integration, ethnic network, free market, and information technology. The logistics related environmental factors that are taken into consideration include geographical location, telecommunication infrastructure, finance infrastructure, air transportation infrastructure, sea transportation infrastructure, road transportation infrastructure, professional services, culture, and information technology. A framework of environment‐strategy (E‐S) fit is developed in the perspectives of Hong Kong manufacturing logistics. The factors contributing to the manufacturing success in Hong Kong are also discussed.
