What challenges does supply chain management face today? How can they be overcome? Supply chains are complex networks of suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers, customers, and other stakeholders who collaborate to deliver goods or services from raw materials to consumers. The complexity of these systems makes them prone to disruptions, such as natural disasters, cyber-attacks, labor strikes, and regulatory changes.
