What is Supply Chain Management?

What do logisticians do?

Supply Chain Managers:

  • Direct the allocation of materials, supplies, and finished products
  • Develop business relationships with suppliers and customers
  • Work to understand customers’ needs and how to meet them
  • Design strategies to minimize the cost or time required to move goods
  • Review the success of logistical functions and identify areas for improvement
  • Propose improvements to management and customers

A Supply Chain Manager, also called a logistician, oversee activities that include purchasing, transportation, inventory, and warehousing. They may direct the movement of a range of goods, people, or supplies, from common consumer goods to military supplies and personnel.

Logisticians use software systems to plan and track the movement of goods. They operate software programs tailored specifically to manage logistical functions, such as procurement, inventory management, and other supply chain planning and management systems.
