Abstract
Toyota's internationally coordinated production system in Asia and its
selection of supply bases in South America and South Africa highlights the
significance of recognizing global network firms and the global hub-and-spoke
logistics system that has been developed to meet their needs. This system underpins
the expansion of container shipping, air freight and telecommunications.
Recognition of Main Street, linking Europe, Asia and North America with cul-de-
sacs in Africa, Australasia and Central and South America, provides a framework
for examing the relative importance of the system's hubs and terminals across
different modes and regions. This analysis provides the basis for identifying and
ranking key regional logisitics platforms in Northeast Asia and their attranction as
headquarter site for global network firms. Examining the logisitical situation
pertaining after the end of the Cold War in the early 1990s and a decade later is
used to gauge progress towards regional economic integration in Northeast Asia.
