Providing insight into the increasingly important area of supply chain finance, this book offers a clear introduction to this subject and demonstrates the importance of the relationship between supply chain and financial communities within a business. Financing the End to End Supply Chain contains vital information on how supply chain finance is operationalized and put into place, starting with purchasing, and linking together treasury, banking, supply chain, systems, IT, and key stakeholders. With a combination of theory and practice, the book also addresses issues including information and financial flows and tailoring supply chain finance to individual organizations' circumstances. Recognizing that “supply chain finance” means different things in different countries, the authors also consider various incentives to harmonize and develop cross-border financing from the World Bank and other institutions, as well as provide an agenda for national and international policy makers.
