The present work deals with the issue of business logistic and production management. This topic is of great interest in the context of discussions on sustainable strategies of globally acting enterprises or enterprise networks as well as states and regional authorities. It is a rethinking of value added networks and the assignment of supply chain processes, for example in the framework of a distributed production to geographical locations. The choice of Cameroon as study area is justified on the one hand by its geographical location, on the other hand by its great potential of raw materials and despite or even because of its characteristics as a developing Country. The work is divided into seven chapters and includes an extensive list of references. The information basis necessary for this work was obtained, in addition to literature review, through own interviews in Germany and in Cameroon as well as temporary collaboration in German-Cameroonian DAAD-Project for the intensification of logistic understanding and logistic education in Cameroon. This was followed by the comparative analysis in order to make a correlation between different cases and circumstances, and subsequently to propose a solution. In addition, a SWOT analysis was performed. It is an evaluation method for detecting strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and risks. Finally, models were developed in order to solve the problem in the reality with illustrations. In the context of current scientific discussion in the operational logistics and transportation industry as well as the production management under consideration of the relevance of the sustainability-related inclusions of developing countries in international value added networks, four essential results were worked out. These results are related to a sustainability-driven redesign of the value chains for a sustainable integration into the world economy of a developing country as Cameroon. Four action recommendations are derived from these results for increasing the production and regional service attractiveness. Particularly noteworthy are the considerations for sustainability-driven redesign of the value chains in the agra-tech sector and in the high-tech sector. In the context of a Cameroonian proverb that says: "When elephants fight against hippopotamus, small animals should worry for their lives!", the entire work appears as a new analysis of business logistics, transport and production industry, taking into account the importance of sustainability with the inclusion of developing countries in international value-added networks.
