Our visions and objectives

We see supply
chains as key to
sustainability

Global supply chains are the product of international economic interdependence and the transnational organization of goods and services. As such, they play an integral part in shaping our economies, societies, and our environment.

"The real Competition
is between supply chains, not companies."

Martin Christopher

"Many supply chains are perfectly suited to the
needs that the business had 20 years ago"

MIT Professor Jonathan Byrne

"The line between
disorder and order lies in logistics..."
