The framework of Supply Chain Management is initially presented thereby creating a foundation for in-depth study of the five logistics operational components. Next the student explores the challenges and strategies related to design and operational integration of logistics within a global supply chain. Lastly, we discuss the administrative challenges related to cross organizational collaboration, performance measurement, and the challenges of managing risk and achieving sustainability
