Supply Chain Evolution

Supply Chain Evolution:  How have supply chain operations and management evolved throughout history? Why were these changes made, and what were their impacts? Do you think that having modern technology (ex. extremely quick shipping) makes supply chain management easier? Or was it simpler in the past when companies focused more locally or domestically and their supply chains were not as big? Explain why.
