How Does the Fuel Get to Your Car?

Next

To get the raw fuel from its source to your car, we must:

  1. Collect, gather, or mine the natural resources
  2. Process the natural resources into a useable form
  3. Deliver the fuel to the customers

This system is called a supply chain.

Supply chains exist for all products.

A supply chain is "a coordinated system of people, activities, information and resources needed to move a product from is source as a raw material, to becoming a finished product ready for the customer.
