Using, by way of example, a sample list of 50 Marks & Spencer products this activity explores how (and why) Marks & Spencer imports products into the UK from all over the world. Working in four teams pupils consider:
  • Why are different sourcing regions helpful to Marks & Spencer?
  • How are different products transported?
  • What kinds of issues affect the supply chain?
  • What are the best ways for Marks & Spencer to deliver different clothes from different parts of the world into the UK?
