Researching a Company's Supply Chain

It can be challenging, if not impossible, to find information about the supply chain or logistics management of a specific company. To get an overall picture of a company's supply chain operations, try using a variety of sources, including the ones listed below.

Resources for Finding Company Profiles

In the company profile, select the options under the Business Relationships heading.

Find your company and then use the function SPLC<GO>.

Finding Company Filings

Annual reports and other company filings often have additional information about the supply chain. Try using CTRL+F to search the documents for the words suppl or distrib to locate discussions about suppliers and distribution for that company.

Newspaper, magazine, and even academic articles may also provide information about a company's supply chain.
