Linked in: Increasingly complex global supply chains boost demand for industry services

Over the past decade, the Australian economy has increasingly accepted international trade and shifted away from manufacturing. Procurement and supply chain consultants have been central to this process, providing expert advice to companies on adapting new supply chain management technology, sourcing goods from new countries and improving logistic procedures. The industry's service offerings are well understood by clients and operators are becoming increasingly dependent on demand trends in major markets. Growing demand from government and retail markets has supported industry revenue growth over the past five years. As a result, industry revenue is expected to rise at an annualised 6.6% over the five years through 2018-19, to total $1.9 billion, with more.
