Who said supply chains are boring?: The supply chain of marble
Supply Chains Rock
AUGUST 10, 2009
As per my last post I took holiday in Tuscany, Italy. While I certainly took the chance to visit the vineyards I also squeezed in a side trip to Carrara, Italy , which as anyone in the area will tell you is world famous for its marble. They are then transported onto flatbed trucks and driven across this bridge (see photo below). From there it would only make sense to use boats to ship the marble worldwide, the weight doesnt make air an option.
