Losing Sleep Due to Supply Chain Worries?
“Don’t try to solve serious matters in the middle of the night.” Philip K. Dick
We all do it, don’t we? Go to bed with worries in our mind. For some of us, that monkey keeps us up all night. And we worry the same thread for hours. For others, and I fall into this category, we fall asleep just fine. But then the dog barks or thunder claps or an ill-hung picture falls from the wall and clatters to the floor, and I’m wide awake. And that’s when all the worry begins.
For folks in the manufacturing business the last several years have been rife with worries. The COVID pandemic and the ensuing shutdowns put everyone behind. From employee absences due to illness to a lack of employees due to fear of illness, manufacturers were hit hard from the very beginning, and supply chain issues kept the pressure on.
Lack of raw materials, lack of warehousing space, lack of trucks and drivers, high rates, equipment failures–the list goes on and on, and I bet there were days or weeks where these worries kept you up at night.
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s just how important a smoothly running supply chain is–not just to our businesses, but to the economy at large. We simply cannot do without the men and women who drive trucks, route trucks, find trucks, and make sure your freight is picked up and delivered on time.
You don’t have to lose sleep over your supply chain.
In today’s world, there are enough uncertainties and worries to keep you up at night. From new variants of the virus to conflicts at home and abroad, we have lots to think about. So why add your supply chain to this list? When you find the right freight broker, you can say goodbye to your worries. But let’s be clear–it’s hard to find the right freight broker.
