    Have you got some more context? Mobile could mean different things.

    Sure!

    "The new found opportunity to provide accurate product tracking within the supply chain offers new possibilities to mobile supply chain management"


    I've googled and found some webpages containing this term but failed to get the point.

    Thank you so much Tdol.

    It's still ambiguous, but probably refers to the management of a system that supplies something, run byworkers who are moving about. (But that sort of management almost certainly uses the mobile phone network - maybe only the network but not the telephone handsets - for example, delivery men with hand-held devices that relay signatures to a central database using the cellular network).

    If I am not mistaken, this is UPS's new terminology to describe the fact that they deliver packages and you can find out where they are. So you can "manage" your "supply" of parts as they are "mobile."
