SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

involves t he management of costs, from the supplier's manufacturing and delivery process [including from their suppliers], to that of our customers and their customers requirements.

Every extra link in this chain costs money, as does every non-cost effective agreement or contract, since they all affect the company's profitability.

The minimisation of this extended cost base is the rationale of SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT.
