What are the 3 principle flows of a supply chain?

Supply chain management flows can be divided into three main flows:

  • The product flow

  • The information flow

  • The finances flow

The product flow includes the movement of goods from a supplier to a customer, as well as any customer returns or service needs. The information flow involves transmitting orders and updating the status of delivery. The financial flow consists of credit terms, payment schedules, and consignment and title ownership arrangements.
