Identify and conduct research which adds to the knowledge base of supply chain theory and practice. Create awareness of the significance of supply chain to business and to the economy.

CSCMP is not: A trade association, social organization, or high-density market, so we do not condone suppliers who use the organization to promote their services. Aligned with shippers, carriers, warehouse operators, material handling equipment manufacturers, consultants, or any other similar industrial grouping. An organization that engages in matters where various members have contrary interests. An organization that endorses, sanctions, or discourages supply chain-related legislation, products, or services.
