Supply chain refers to the network of organizations, people, activities, information, and resources involved in the production, distribution, and delivery of goods and services from the initial sourcing of raw materials to the final consumption by end-users or customers.

The key components of a supply chain include suppliers, manufacturers or producers, distributors and wholesalers, retailers, logistics and transportation, information and communication systems, and customers.
