1. Internal systems and resources.

The supply chain is the whole of the processes and resources needed to move a product or service from a supplier to a buyer.

The supply chain includes both:

  • Financial processes and resources; and
  • Systems, people and other non-financial resources (the physical supply chain).

2. Suppliers.

'Supply chain' also refers to businesses which supply another - often larger - business with components or other inputs.
