Why use this guide?

Researching a company’s supply chain procedure is not as easy as finding other company information about a company so do not expect to find one document that will lay out the information you need.  In order to piece together a company’s supply chain operation be prepared to look through articles, industry reports and financial data to get the big picture view of these operations.


Use the tabs to navigate through the guide.

Country Profiles and Economics - The reports from the resources on this list feature information about the cultural, social and economic conditions of a country along with the business climate.  When looking at other countries it is important to assess these other aspects in order to get a more comprehensive view of that country.
