#1 Research a real-world company, such as Walmart, Starbucks, or Apple, that has expanded operations internationally. Write 200-250 words on international supply chain management using the company that you researched as your focus. Your response should answer the following questions:
From manufacturing to the distribution of goods on an international scale, what are the main elements of a supply chain?
For this discussion, I highly recommend you select a publicly-traded company. As discussed in the Live Chats, public-facing companies are required to provide a significant amount of information to the public, IRS, Stockholders, etc., including financials and activities (internally and externally). These are called reportable items and include all logistics and supply chain activities, functions, costs, risks, advantages, disadvantages, goals, and so forth.
An easy way to identify a public company is starting with the Fortune List, here’s the link to the Fortune 500 List with information from 500 public companies, what the companies do, their industries, reach, etc https://fortune.com/fortune500/
Once you’ve selected the company you want to research navigate to the company’s website and ensure the company has a global presence. Then navigate to Investor Relations, this is a good way to identify what logistics and supply chain operations the company has (remember every company is different) and answer the assignment questions. I highly recommend navigating to the 10K Annual Report and starting your search there.
