Asia Pacific Supply Chain Director Survey
A qualified, independent and unbiased perspective on the key challenges faced by Supply Chain Directors in Asia today. An essential tool for anybody operating within the supply chain sector in an increasingly challenging global economy.

Businesses today are defined by their supply chains, a source of competitive advantage if managed effectively. With the global economy redefining the dynamics of industry competition, today’s faster paced markets demand speed, flexibility and innovation. Modern businesses face higher levels of scrutiny as they are pressurised to meet ever increasing customer requirements on an ongoing and increasingly demanding cost efficient basis.

In these challenging economic times, manufacturers and retailers continue to strive to achieve a profitable balance between satisfying customer requirements whilst streamlining their operational cost base. Hence the 2011 Analytiqa Asia Pacific Supply Chain Director’s Survey presents an Asia Pacific market perspective on the current supply chain industry based on primary information and opinion gathered directly from senior professionals within the region.
