A supply chain technician is a person who installs, operates, supports, upgrades, or maintains the automated material handling equipment and systems that support the supply chain. The supply chain encompasses literally every commercial enterprise with a tangible product to move, store, or deliver. The National Center for Supply Chain Automation (SCA) informs the public and increases the visibility of this high-growth career opportunity that is so crucial to so many different industries.
