Welcome. The Center for Supply Chain Management and Logistics at the University of Illinois at Chicago exists to address cutting-edge supply-chain problems, particularly in this time of industry globalization, the recently passed Central American Free Trade Agreement, increased energy costs, and the need to maintain Chicago area and national competitiveness. Supply Chain Management is a growing field with roots in transportation, information technology, marketing, industrial and civil engineering, and economics. It is an interdisciplinary field that requires innovative, solutions to address supply-chain problems and issues.
Over the last decade, strategic management of supply-chain issues has become critical in the success and competition of businesses and public agencies. Successful entities are able to control their supply base, create continuous performance improvement, and identify and alleviate supply bottlenecks and liabilities. Ignoring the importance of supply chain management within your organizational can be detrimental and lead to operational failure.
I invite you to learn how the Center for Supply Chain Management and Logistics can help your organization obtain a competitive edge and operate more efficiently. Browse our Web site and consider the potential gains your organization can realize by partnering with the center.
