Here is a description of the cocoa supply chain from the raw material to the final customer.

This drawing shows the different steps from production to distribution, and thus it underlines the importance of transport activities to ship raw materials to processing factories, and then to distribution centers. 

The different steps also show that many actors are involved in the supply chain and that of course, the supply chain manager is expected to supervise all these steps to  make sure the products are put in the shelves of the supermarkets to be purchased by customers.
