“I have worked in supply chain for a number of years now and I feel the experiences I have gained have brought me to the position I am in today, where I am a perfect match for your company.

I am conscientious, determined, resilient and professional in my approach to my supply chain duties, and I also understand that, without someone performing their duties in this position to a high standard, your organization cannot function effectively.

Q2. What is the supply chain?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“In very simple terms, the supply chain is a system that involves organizations, people, resources, activities and information that are all involved in the process of moving a product or service from the supplier to the customer.

With a supply chain, there is usually an entire network of different entities that are all interlinked, working towards serving the same consumer or customer.

An example of a very simple supply chain, is where a vendor supplies a raw material, a producer turns that material into a product, a warehouse then stores the product, a distribution center delivers the product to a retailer, who then, in turn, delivers it to the consumer or the end user.”
