Abstract: The objective of Toyota Motors is to improve its competitiveness by application of integrated supply chain management. ISCM helps to reduce the operational cost and brings better inventory management. There are network of companies involved in decision making and information flow which includes distributors, suppliers, customers and agents. The objective of this paper is to study the application of integrated supply chain management in Toyota motors. The data is collected on the basis of both primary and secondary data analysis. The primary data was collected by interviewing the individuals involved in supply chain of Toyota motors. The secondary data was collected from literature review. The method of analysis is descriptive qualitative analysis. This study concludes that Toyota should focus on market demand rather than new product development of a quality product and forcing it to market to purchase. It should focus on integrated supply chain management to improve its operations.

Key words: Supply chain management, distribution, integration, production planning, inventory management, vendors
