This study analyses how policy measures and technological developments affect the trade-offs between elements of the logistical system of a supply chain. It is assumed that this logistical system consists of the following elements: sourcing, production, inventory, transportation and service. Two cases of supply chains of building materials have been analysed. This analysis results in a matrix in which the effects of policy measures and technological developments for the different elements in the logistical system of these supply chains are classified.
