Supply chain management is a vast field. Think about the process a single piece of clothing or technology goes through, from point of origin to your local store shelf.
There are raw materials to source, a manufacturing process, warehousing, distribution, global transportation logistics, and local delivery networks.
At each stage, there are contracts to be made, negotiations, problem-solving, costs to manage, orders to track, and clients to update.
Supply chain management is a highly complex, global industry with many areas of specialization and potential career paths.
