What is the Supply chain?

In case you didn’t know, the supply chain is a system of a number of elements such as organizations, people, information, and resources. These elements are all linked I the process of moving products or service from the supplier, all the way to the end goal which is the customer. The supply chain deals with the conversion or transformation of natural resources and raw materials into a finished product which is then delivered to the customer.
