Long Distance Supply Chain Optimization: Shifting from Local to Global Networks
Faced with thin margins and pressure from OEMs to reduce material cost, organizations search for cost savings, especially into the supply chain.

This movement is driving a paradigm shift from the traditional local direct supply chain to an extended long distance supply network.
