The process of delivering goods or services.  Supply chain management is concerned with the flow of materials and services, including delivery to the ultimate customer, as well as the associated flows of money and information.  The ‘last kilometre’ is often seen as a key challenge, as delivery to a dispersed customer base is a greater challenge than delivery to points or nodes in the supply chain such as warehouses.
