The cement industry plays a key role in our lives as basic material for all types of construction. Nearly, all cement industries have struggled with many problems over the last decade because of the unstable political situation, that negatively affects the Libyan economy. This research seeks to explore the development of the current industry sector in Libya, focusing in cement manufacturing, and assesses recent efforts to attract further foreign development. It sheds the light on the importance of logistics cost, as a factor in increasing the production capacity of the cement industry. Furthermore, to understand the significance of this subject, it provides an assessment of improving the capacity of cement manufacturing products in Libya through the “logistics strategy”. A survey was conducted among the target companies. The analysis of the survey responses indicates that, the management body within the surveyed companies has a modest strategy in most areas, which are considered very crucial for any level successful implementation of new strategies.
