The Supply Chain – The network, both physical and digital, between a company and its supplying partners to create and distribute a product to the final user. Depending on the nature of the business, this network includes a variety of activities, people, data, and resources. In the logistics world, supply chains can be complex and interdependent. Therefore, a streamlined collaboration between all of the interested parties is absolutely paramount. Typically, transactions in the supply chain happen across multiple owners and trading partners. Equally typical is any disconnect between the data, the computer processes, and the users.
Ultimately, the supply chain includes the steps needed to get the product or service from the source to the destination. Companies try to optimize these supply chains to help reduce costs and stay competitive. Managing this supply chain to keep costs low while maximizing speed becomes a crucial goal.
