Supply chain management (SCM) is the lifeblood of modern business, serving as the backbone that connects manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, retailers, and customers.
In recent years, the landscape of supply chain management has evolved rapidly, presenting a myriad of challenges for businesses worldwide. These challenges, exacerbated by factors like globalisation, technological advancements, and unforeseen disruptions such as the COVID-19 pandemic, have forced companies to re-evaluate their strategies and adapt to survive in this dynamic environment.
