For North West Facilities Supply Chain Management includes the planning and management of all our activities ranging from sourcing and procurement, conversion, and logistics management.
We are also conscious that Supply Chain Management should also cover the coordination and collaboration with our partners including our suppliers, intermediaries, third-party service providers, and our customers.
In essence, supply chain management integrates supply and demand management within and across the business. Supply Chain Management is the process where we link our major business functions and business processes within and across all our activities into a cohesive and high-performing structure. We include all of our logistics management activities noted above, as well as construction and service operations. It shapes and coordinates our activities across every area of our business including marketing, sales, product design, finance and information technology.
