Abstract

Supply chain management in Asia is a relatively new topic but is a key challenge for all Asia based manufacturers and traders trying to integrate into the “global market.†The purpose of this paper is to describe key supply chain issues faced in Asia. Many of these issues are related to the importance of a properly managed supply chain in enhancing firms’ competitiveness, as well as supply chain security issues that force Asian firms to comply with numerous regulatory requirements. The critical role played by Asia-based logistics providers in facilitating supply chain integration is further explored. Logistics providers must be able to design effective and efficient supply chains in order to meet clients’ needs. A case study is then presented to illustrate how supply chain dynamics affects supplier selection.
