Supply chain management is a cross-functional business concept that includes, for example, logistics and operations management. For too long business has focused on short-term cost advantages through low-cost country sourcing with little regard for the longer-term implications of global sustainability. In many organizations purchasing is now part of the supply chain management function, however, a company is no more sustainable than the suppliers it sources from, which means that a wealth of research is emerging that connects sustainability, purchasing and supply chain management.
As time and distance become conquerable in a global economy, understanding the future of supply chain management is the process of understanding how the world interacts.
