The present article illustrates the new dimensions of the global financial supply chain for the manufacturing industry. The financial supply chain is an integral component of overall supply chain management. Physical products, information systems, financial flows and sustainable elements are closely aligned with each other throughout the supply chain incorporating manufacturers, customers, suppliers and financial organisations. The manufacturer shares financial data with its suppliers as part of a cooperative strategy that generates cost savings for the manufacturers and its suppliers. The cooperative strategy also improves the quality of the payment process and produces strategic benefits; such as risk reduction for the supply chain in areas including foreign exchange and payments. The development of financial supply chains along with sustainable financial elements lead to significant savings in terms of funding, banking and administrative costs associated with payment activities. The supply chain management literature has not fully addressed the development of financial supply chains. This study looks into a new and unexplored research area by addressing the inter-relationships between finance and manufacturing supply chains which is of a direct relevance to researchers in supply chain management.
