The Net Best Thing: The Best of Three Worlds

Three different companies on three different continents, each facing diverse challenges and forming unique solutions. It's the supply chain at its very best.



What's Your Net Best Thing?


Each company described in this article has taken a different path toward building a next-generation supply chain, illustrating that no cookie- cutter solutions yet exist for making a supply chain more efficient, and that strategic planning remains critical when contemplating any e-business solution. As Barloworld's Deppe says: It's important that people don't create e-business companies for the sake of creating them. If the Internet can provide an expansion to your business process, then look at it. Otherwise, keep looking for your own Net Best Thing.
