Purchasing and Logistics Alignment Challenge

You’re a group of purchasing agents who have been contracted by Small Molecule, a pharmaceutical distribution reseller. Small Molecule has identified a gap between purchasing and logistics. They want to compete in an emerging market but because of that gap between purchasing and logistics, they are at a significant disadvantage in the market. The gap is concerning because there may not be enough focus to align purchasing and logistics to execute the launch of a new product that is outsourced. Apply the “Seven Actions a Supply Chain Leader Can Take Today” as outlined in Ch. 5 (page 119) to better align purchasing and logistics as a strategic advantage. Write a 500- to 650-word paper that depicts each actionable item resulting from going through all seven steps. Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
