This article reports on the second meeting of the strategic supply chain management special interest group which was held in Ireland in 2001. Over 50 business and Institute of Logistics and Transport members attended the event. Agenda for the meeting was geared around feedback and progress made since the inaugural meeting. That meeting had identified four key issues critical to the success of supply chain management for businesses operating across the island of Ireland. These are collaboration, education, information technology, and transport infrastructure. Substantial progress has been made on all four areas since June 2001. The recently formed cross-border, government-funded, trade body InterradeIreland commissioned a study on supply chain management and transport in order to evaluate policies and identify the logistics, supply chain and transport actions necessary to facilitate north-south trade.
