International trade is the transaction of capital, goods and services between two or more countries.

The global economy in which we live or globalization was driven by international trade and tremendously increased economic interdependence among countries and their organizations as reflected in the flow of goods and services, financial capital, and knowledge across country borders.

Supply chain management (SCM) is the management of the flow of goods and services. It includes the movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption.  Supply chain management is a cross-functional approach that includes managing the movement of raw materials into an organization, certain aspects of the internal processing of materials into finished goods, and the movement of finished goods out of the organization and toward the end consumer.
