What is Supply Chain Management?

Supply chain management is the management of everything from production and product development to information systems and product delivery. By working to actively streamline a business’ activities to maximize customer value and gain an edge over the competition in the marketplace, businesses are able to implement efficient and economical supply chain management systems. Carefully managing a business’ supply chain can often lead to cutting down on excess costs and being able to deliver products to the consumer at a faster rate.

Why is Supply Chain Management Important?

In today’s world, supply chain management is an integral part of business and is essential in the overall success of a company, as well as customer satisfaction. Proper supply chain management can help businesses by:

Improving Customer Services

Supply chain management works to improve customer services by not only ensuring that customers receive the correct products and quantities but also that their orders are delivered on time. Having products on hand and in the right location of the warehouse can also ensure that you are able to provide your customers with products in a timely manner.

In the event that one of your products is defective, having a proper supply chain management system will also ensure that you are able to provide your customers with a new product or customer support right away.

Reducing Operating Costs

Wholesale manufacturers and retail suppliers rely on proficient supply chain management to design a network that meets customer service goals and gives the business a competitive edge in the market. Having a proper supply chain management system in place can help decrease purchase costs by allowing for the quick distribution of products, as well as decrease production costs by providing the reliable delivery of materials.

Improving Financial Position

Supply chain management helps businesses control and decrease supply chain expenditures, as well as decrease the use of large fixed assets like warehouses and transportation vehicles, while still increasing the speed of product flows to customers.
