UPS Supply Chain Management and Tracking
Following a review of supply chain management competitive considerations and cost drivers, it should be apparent that there is no way to identify a single solution that is optimum from all perspectives. In reality, companies use a variety of tactics. For a technologically advanced product with a low profit margin, the supply chain must be efficient and low-cost. The overall strategy will be considerably different in the event of an innovative product with large profits and maybe a limited life.
The availability of items on the shelves is critical in the retail industry. Even yet, a dissatisfied customer may have a minor influence, especially for items that have adequate replacements. A stockout for an entire product category (such as milk) or for products with strong brand loyalty (such as Coke in the soft drink industry or personal hygiene detergents) could have serious consequences.
We may have quite different goals in the "business-to-business" sector. Consider maintaining a supply of replacement parts to replace those that are faulty or fail in large industrial machining equipment. Keeping such equipment inactive due to a shortage of replacement parts may be highly costly: in fact, stockout costs may be straightforward to measure in this situation, as there are contracts that stipulate fines for failure to provide service. It is impossible to quantify the stockout cost of spare parts for life-critical equipment in hospitals, but we can clearly see that in such a case, we must ensure immediate availability either through appropriate stock levels or, if the cost is too high, through extremely fast and expensive transportation.
We must link priorities with competitive variables and discover cost-effective strategies to attain a particular performance objective in order to establish a strategy. It's possible that you'll have to choose between performance and expense. Companies in different industries are likely to develop strategies that are extremely diverse. It's no surprise that managing supply chains for high-performance laptop computers differs from managing supply chains for soap powder. However, even within the same industry, various tactics might be observed.

Personal computers are offered through a variety of channels to cater to a variety of customers. Some customers are smart and want a highly precise setup; they are ready to wait for extended periods of time to receive exactly what they want. Others like having a limited number of options to choose from, but they want quick delivery and low pricing. For similar reasons, some customers choose to shop through a website, but others prefer to buy from more conventional channels because they desire a human touch in the event of a product malfunction. Different marketing tactics can be used to address different market segments.
