Scottish Supply Chain Forum

The Scottish Supply Chain Forum (SSCF) addresses supply chain issues from a Scottish perspective.

What does it do?

The SSCF addresses issues affecting Scotland's supply chain, including:

  • internal strategic Scottish developments
  • Scotland's connectivity with the rest of the UK
  • international supply chain issues

The Forum works to inform Scottish and UK public policy formulation through private submissions and public lobbying. This relates to public policy issues arising from the Scottish Government, the UK Government and the EU (as they impact Scotland or its supply chain) and their associated regulatory bodies.

The group also shares information across the industry to promote best practice and optimum use of services and infrastructure
