What is supply chain and logistics?

Amazon, Zara, Coca-Cola, Apple, the local convenience store, McDonald’s, music and films, and every retailer and brand you know relies on supply chain and logistics to organise and move the product to you. Supply chains involve buying, forecasting, designing and creating product, sustainability, the latest technologies and people working together across the world to make it all happen. It’s a fast moving global network of businesses, focussing on customer satisfaction and getting the job done. Rapidly developing, and economically important to Australia’s future, the industry needs talented creative people!

The future of supply chain will be faster and smarter, greener and more transparent. Finding solutions to the problem of supply chain sustainability will require new minds with fresh ideas, and strong values. The advent of a whole range of revolutionary technologies, from automation and robotics, artificial intelligence and data analytics, to blockchain and Internet of Things will allow for huge improvements in speed, efficiency and profitability of supply chains.
