Supply chain management in consumer packaged goods is the management of the procurement of raw materials, through to the manufacture and distribution of finished goods. There are multiple touch points throughout this process to ensure that goods are managed safely and efficiently.

The role of improving supply chain management in most organizations is to improve efficiencies and cost-effectiveness. This process has become diversified in recent years with concerns about efficiency and carbon emissions. There now are alternatives to traditional methods that have been used on mass scale like the use of petrol vehicles. For example, new ways of covering the last mile would be through electric vehicles (EVs), autonomous ground vehicles (AGVs), and drones.
