Participants in the supply chain have witnessed gradual changes, including electronic invoicing, computerized shipping, and tracking and automated notifications with the advent of new technology. Many logistic companies have adopted and advanced these technologies for business-to-business interactions before offering tracking and accountability facility to consumers. However, it was apparent even in the early days that the ability to send notification to everyone along the chain was vital and would gradually become an integral part of the supply chain management.
While supply chain management has been around since the assembly line, its role has evolved in the recent times to become complex. Full of risk, it is subject to regulations, fines, competition, and international shipping restrictions. Technology, however, has provided logistics sector with several new capabilities, redefining the role of supply chain management as a profession and discipline.
