How to Create a Logistics or Supply Chain Management Vision?

I am looking for some examples of a Vision of Logistics. Most companies publish their company vision. But are divisions within big companies also developing a SCM or Logistics Vision? If so, have you got examples of such visions?

How to Create a SCM Vision

The reason I see for not finding examples of vision of logistics, is that it's not relevant. SCM is an approach of management supported by tools and techniques, which is designed to support the company's vision. Where the company wants to go, what markets are targeted, with which competitive weapons are the input to a well balanced operation strategy.
However, a well understood logistics and SC organization, performing reliable and able to react quickly, can provide interesting strategic advantages. One frequent problem is that top management doesn't always understand this, and miss the opportunity to consider this as a valuable input into the strategic planning process.
