Job Description for Supply Chain Planner

A supply chain planner is responsible for ensuring that a company receives the materials or supplies they need quickly, efficiently, and within budget. To do this, they must monitor the company’s inventories and track the performance of current supply methods. Then, the supply chain planners try to find ways to improve that process. Depending on their industry, the supply chain planner may suggest moving warehouses, changing suppliers, or switching transportation methods. In the event of a supply emergency (such as a sudden increase in demand or a shortage of materials), the supply chain planner must also determine how to get new supplies in time to meet deadlines.
