Global supply chain partners can experience various problems, such as managing the long-range logistics involved during the end-to-end process. Various issues contribute to such operational problems, such as delays at the point of shipment and transit issues, for example.
For this assignment, respond to the following:
- Describe a supply chain’s operational problem, including the factors contributing to the problem, that you have experienced yourself or that you have observed others in your personal or professional life experience.
- What are the primary reasons that supply chain operational problems occur?
Review and consider supply chain operational problems described by two of your peers. One way to respond to each of your peers is to share your thoughts on how these factors contributed to the operational problem. Another approach would be to provide your perspective on other factors that might also be contributing to the active situation.
