AbstractLogistics providers are developing competitive advantage by coordinating different customers logistics solutions. We are presenting some of the basic factors taken into consideration for a TPL firm when coordinating its customers. The possibilities to coordinate are dependent not only on activities of different customers, suppliers and customers´customers but also the attitudes and behavior reflected from their strategies. The dimensions of main importance for coordination are used as a base for finding suitable customer profiles. Finally we are discussing how the logistics providers effectively cope with the dynamic interaction and the network fit between customers.
