The "Supply Chain Foundation" (SCF) is a global network of Supply Chain professionals, which aims at "Enriching Professional Lives, Globally": check out the SCF vision.

"The Supply Chain Foundation" has been created by long-standing supply chain professionals at the cross-roads of purchasing, logistics, operations and management with a view to integrate such disciplines with no historic legacy in any particular discipline and a clear focus on contributing to creating a profession which would be recognized as having a decisive impact on the performance of organisations and would thus motivate all professionals to engage into rewarding careers.



The perspective taken by the SCF is multi-functional, considering Supply Chain Management (SCM) in the broadest sense of all key functions contributing to supplying customers with requested goods or services. These functions are Procurement, Logistics, Operations (including manufacturing) and Customer Service & Support, in a managerial context.

The geographic perspective taken here is global and the content perspective is on content of relevant to all members with a focus on fruitful interactions with full respect for confidentiality and privacy. (No user and passwords can stolen from us, contrary to public social networks).


In the same spirit, only a limited set of information is available on the public pages of this site.

- Fully professional with privacy, integrity, specialised in supply chain with a focus on "content"

- Full set of services: with easy access to networking, information, knowledge, training, qualifications, jobs, events
