Value of effective Supply Chain Management

Business people have long appreciated the value of effectively managing the Supply Chain (SC) or Logistics process. Supply Chain and Logistics functions include the management of customer service/order entry, purchasing, inventory management, forecasting, production planning, distribution center operations, traffic/transportation and computerized logistics and SC systems.

The Logistics process alone can absorb 7.5% and more of every sales dollar and Supply Chain costs in total can range from 50-80% of total sales and both directly affect customer satisfaction.
