Efficient supply chains move and transfer products from one place to another, as well as produce and process raw materials into finished products. The final step includes safely distributing them to consumers. There is both the need for physical and intellectual prowess. This is because a supply chain needs manual input to move products around and mental input to keep track of the products. Additionally, people must take inventory in-between the transport of products.
Tracking products that are being produced and transported helps companies monitor their production rate to determine whether their supply is keeping up with the demands of their customers. Supply chain processes usually occur in warehouses, transportation hubs, and distribution centers. Inside these warehouses, various office and labor employees closely monitor and carry out every step of the process.
