About the book
A supply chain is a network between manufacturing or service companies and their suppliers to produce and distribute specific products and services to customers. This network covers a wide range of resources, like technologies, logistics, human and financial resources. Since the last couple of decades, environmental and sustainability issues of supply chain solutions have had more and more importance. With advances in recent technologies represented by Industry 4.0, reliable, flexible, and greener processes will lead to the changes in the supply chain. Future solutions for supply chain operations must be able to adapt quickly to changed market requirements and answer the “green challenge” of the 21st century.
