Identifying Locations and Industries With High Potential for Supply Chain Participation

March, 2002


When supply chain promoters must identify the best potential participants for their systems, several approaches can be used. The most effective technique is to determine which industries are likely to have the highest amount of money flowing through supply chains in the coming years. Looking at potential dollar volume in supply chains by state is another profitable way to find future supply chain participants. In addition, supply chain promoters may also look at the amount of total revenue in an industry as well as the total number of companies in the sector, but these are not as accurate measures.
