What is supply chain management?
The supply chain is a complex and sometime fragile endeavor dependent on a network of independent, yet interconnected, moving parts.
Vendors supply raw materials, producers convert those raw materials into products, warehouses store that product until it’s needed, distribution centers pick up and deliver that product, retailers, online and in-store, bring that product to you
Global partners collaborate across time zones and oceans to decrease costs and increase performance in ways no single company ever could. It requires professional management.
Supply chain management encompasses everyone involved in maintaining the supply chain. Behind every product, there are supply chain management professionals making it possible to get your products better, faster, and cheaper.
