End of a Supply Chain Era

from scdigest.com By Dan Gilmore – Editor-in-Chief

When they write the history of supply chain management, I am fairly confident they will note that we entered a new era somewhere right around 2007-08.

In short, it just isn’t about us (North America, Western Europe) any more and, in a more profound way, it’s more than just about the surge in offshore manufacturing over the past 10 years. To borrow from a political phrase, I suggest we are now entering a New Supply Chain World Order – one that is truly global, with important ramifications for all of us in the supply chain business.
