A lot of people enjoy buying new clothes, video games, even food, but what they don't know is where exactly all the material comes from to make all of their stuff. The fabric from the new clothes is made in a factory, which gets turned into the clothes, ordered by numerous companies, and shipped all the throughout the world. Between the time it takes to make these items, to the time that the buyer purchases them, there are many people who work different jobs to get these items to the stores. For example, there is someone called a transportation planner who basically figures out which items are being shipped to where in the world, and there's someone who has to lift the crates with all the merchandise called the container lift operator. This chain of jobs is called the supply chain, and offers hundreds of different jobs that provide great pay. For more information on these jobs and the supply chain, go to supplychaincanada.org.
