Supply Chain Management Research Center

A research center at the University of Arkansas

The Supply Chain Management Research Center (SCMRC) at the Sam M. Walton College of Business sponsors and promotes supply chain, logistics, and transportation research and education. Center faculty view the supply chain as the channel that integrates business processes from suppliers through end users, providing value-added products, services, and information. Supply chain management incorporates both inter- and intra-company logistics, transportation, and management systems.

The SCMRC vision is to become the thought leader on the supply chain
implications of public policy, economic policy and regulation.
