Supply Chain Management Training

Effective development and management of your supply chain network will cut your costs and enhance your customer value. This is a sustainable source of advantage in today’s turbulent marketplace, where demand is difficult to predict and supply chains need to be more flexible as a result. The real competition today is not between companies, but between supply chains. The winning approach to supply chains is an integrated perspective that takes account of networks of relationships, sustainability, and product design, as well as the logistics of procurement, distribution, and fulfillment. Logistics and Supply Chain Management Training examines the tools, core processes, and initiatives that ensure businesses gain and maintain their competitive advantage.
