What is Global Supply Chain Management?

As the flow of products and services and the synchronization of supply with demand become increasingly complex in a global marketplace, companies rely upon supply chain managers to maintain productivity.  Responsible for coordinating the transport of goods and services from supplier to manufacturer to retailer, supply chain managers are also charged with keeping purchasing and production costs low and deliveries timely.  It’s a fast paced and professionally rewarding career that usually involves travel, troubleshooting and a high degree of business-related decision making.
