So what is it that Supply Chain Consultants actually do? Broadly speaking they are responsible for the movement of goods from the raw materials stage right through to the finished product and then distribution onto the customer. All companies have supply chains of varying degrees – depending on the size of the organisation and the product that is being produced. Supply Chain Consultants procure parts and materials for products at the lowest possible cost base.
