SUPPLY CHAIN DESIGN

Supply chains should be built from customers back through to suppliers.  It is not about shipping out from a factory or warehouse that was set years ago.  Warehouses represent product positioning--a key element of the new supply chain that drives the new e-commerce and multichannel.

It is about servicing customers.  It is not about servicing factories.  It is about time compression--another key element of the new supply chain.
