New trend in Supply Chain

This movement shows supply chain is now open to not only manufacturing companies but also individuals and SME. This new-type supply chain helps people to release an idea buried in individuals’ mind. Even individuals who do not have enough money can have an opportunity to come out with innovative products and mass-produce them, utilizing cloud funding and outsourced supply chain. Even though a product is developed by individual idea, of course, it can make good business sense since this supply chain aims at mass-production.
- What kinds of measures do big companies take against this new type supply chain?
