Global Supply Chain Security

Global Supply Chain Security

January 2008

Contribution from DTZ. The supply chain for a corporation is a co-ordinated system of organisations, people, activities, information and resources involved in moving and managing a product or service from supplier to customer, often on a global scale. Globalisation has benefited major airports and ports involved in this process through increased global trading. However, globalisation has also led to the implementation of the "just in time method" which involves producing just enough of what is needed, where and when it is needed. Although this method has been successful in reducing manufacturing waste, it has also made supply chains more vulnerable to disruption.
