A supply chain moves a product or service from supplier to customer. It is the people, activities, information, and resources which move the product.

Supply chain activities transform natural resources, raw materials, and components into a finished product that is delivered to the end user or customer.[1] The term is most used in business and finance. In short, the supply chain is an illustration of the different activities carried on in given transit of goods.
