Modern competition has already become the competition among enterprises and their supply chains rather than the competition among enterprises only, with the development of information technology and economic globalization. In this era, the organizations are forced to rethink their operations, alliances, partnerships and strategies to cope with these and similar changes. Supply chain competitiveness has been emerged as one of the strongest tool for gaining competitive advantages. Although healthcare industries have responded serious competitive challenges through their network alliance, the theoretical element for sustainable competitive advantage of healthcare supply chain has not been well examined. A company is competitive when it is able to create and deliver value for its customers. A supply chain is competitive if it is able to create and deliver value for its customers and its components. In the growing economy of India, supply chain competitiveness (SCC) is a real solution to the problems faced by organizations in this global environment, which now ultimately leads to a World of e-SCM (Electronic Supply Chain Management). This paper identifies some of the e-supply chain competitiveness issues and presents roles of suppliers, manufacturers and distributors, some future perspectives of e-SCM with an aim to identify the critical issues related to supply chain competitiveness and presents roles of the major components of supply chain, altogether. Our target is also to discuss the emerging challenges of healthcare supply chains and their need for understanding the upstream and downstream collaborative healthcare network for global markets.
