The products that consumers use every day do not reach their local stores by accident. They are produced, assembled, and shipped from all over the world. Advanced modern technologies and pandemic-related changes have highlighted global interdependencies and challenges. Linear thinking of supply chain is out of date. The global supply chain is more and more a supply network.
In Managing Global Supply Chains, you’ll learn how a product reaches its final destination and how the latest industry trends impact global supply chain network management. We’ll cover how to make the best global sourcing decisions, choose alternatives to delivering products to customers, and ensure international supplier performance despite time zones differences.
