Supply Chain Management is a management philosophy developed after realizing the necessity of coordinating the firms in order to increase profitability and survive in the market under the circumstances of rough and rapidly increasing global competition. According to this philosophy, all the processes from raw material procurement to final product sales and all the players who take place in these processes are the links of a chain. The success of the supply chain depends on the success of the each member across the chain, however the success of individual participants itself does not mean a successful SCM application is achieved. Hence the paper aims at analyzing the basic actors of the logistics sector in Turkey; namely logistics service providers, logistics service customers, the equipment and hardware providers, and logistics information system providers to reveal the snapshot of each party and to point out the gaps regarding requirements of different sectors and offered services. A field study involving face-to-face interviews with each of the 428 companies operating in the logistics sector as customers, service providers, information systems providers or equipment providers was performed for the research. The requirements for technological improvement in these four perspectives as well as in the logistics sector globally are identified by exposing open-ended questions of the interviews. The requirements are sorted according to the strategic considerations of the sector stakeholders. Finally a global result is established for the logistic sector by using order weighted averaging operator.
