Supply Chain Information

This webpage is designed to help anyone interested in supply chain issues including participants in the Marshall's Master of Science in Global Supply Chain Management degree program.

You can search for articles on supply chains, logistics and major suppliers by searching databases such as ProQuest, LexisNexis Academic (Nexis Uni), Factiva and EBSCO Business Source Complete for contract announcements and related information. Limit by specific subject whenever possible using terms such as 'supply chain management' or a particular industry (e.g.: automotive and supply chain).  Some information is also available for pubic companies in their 10K filings. Mergent Horizon has information on suppliers (see below).
