What is supply chain?
A supply chain is a comprehensive network that encompasses all the elements involved in producing and delivering a product or service, from the initial stages of raw material acquisition to the final delivery to the end consumer.
It comprises a complex set of activities, processes, and entities working together to ensure the efficient flow of goods, information, and services. Supply chains can be intricate, involving multiple participants across different geographical locations, and effective management is essential for organizations to meet customer demands, control costs, and stay competitive in the market.
