However, for some of the businesses logistics is still related to one of the strategic functions to transfer it to the third parties. For both groups, 3PLs and companies with their own transport operations, it is important to work on supply chain optimization, activity coordination improvement, customer service improvement and process cycle time reduction. These beneficial changes are very difficult to achieve without the application of information technology and BI tools in everyday operations. Nowadays, the use of BI tools in the transportation field has become more of an essential requirement rather than luxury. Companies are looking for ways to manage and control their transportation costs.

In essence, the IT department helps with all the information, technology, software, and data decision making in a company. This makes the department vital to the company’s success. However, if a company did not have or invest in an IT department, many things could go wrong inside the company itself. The company would not be able to attain the full financial capability of its products as well as being able to run the most economically sound. In addition, one other potential risk a business could encounter with no IT department could be revenue loss in security and information databases.
On the contrary, threats are problems outside of the business that may cause problems, e.g. competition. As mentioned above, a business owner needs to use these well in order to make a coherent, well-prepared SWOT analysis. I also feel it is important to note that internal elements are ones that are particular to the business, while external elements are ones that are out of the control of the business; they are dependent on other factors that a business cannot directly influence/change. SWOTs should be updated regularly in order to keep up with the internal business environment, as well as the external environment (new competitors; government regulations, etc.)
1 Introduction Brownfield development is the process of redevelopment on previously developed lands that are abandoned, closed or underused (Adams, De Sousa & Tiesdell, 2010). While some brownfield can be too contaminated, most brownfields are re-useable to create great value once cleaned up. And in this world of scarce resources, brownfield development becomes crucial as we focus more on sustainability and resource optimizing. While factors of rising awareness of urban sustainability issues, presence of derelict/disused urban space and society’s rising demand for ‘urban lifestyle’ promotes brownfield development, the process to transfer from greenfield development to brownfield development can be very complicated. In this paper, I will be focusing on the impacts of government regulation, land ownership and developer behaviour on urban brownfield residential development process.
In order for urban transition to succeed, government must join and encourage more of the OUPs kinds of organizations to help the slum areas. Lower Sustainability In addition to being incapable of providing a suitable environment, urban transition negatively impacts the climate. Migration
In perspective of just city, even if the principal outcome does not prior on economic benefits but result on improving the quality of environment, the economic limit should make possible action.

Otherwise, this will leave the affected party with no recourse against the sole trader but to go to the trouble and expense of entering into a new contract with a different contractor. The Law Reform (Frustrated Contracts) Act 1943 was applied in the Atwal case. Generally, the Act applied to commercial contracts, unless it has been expressly excluded in the terms of the contract. A party may avoid being frustrated by an unforeseen event by writing into a contract, provisions on monies and expenses paid or due. Had Mr. and Mrs. Atwal protect their position with alternative provisions, they would not be frustrated by the claim for a "just sum" for valuable work done.
