2023 and the Logistics Support You Need
3PL, Freight Broker, outsourced logistics
How long have you been working with freight brokers or 3PLs (third party logistic providers)?
If you’re like most manufacturers and distributors in the midwest, freight brokers have been helping you with some of your freight moves for years, especially during times of upheaval when capacity gets tight.
The last two (almost 3) years have been tough for shippers. The COVID-19 pandemic, Russia’s war on Ukraine, and climate change with its attendant extreme weather events have all contributed to an almost constant disruption in the supply chain. For manufacturers like you, it’s meant unpredictability, higher rates, and limited truck capacity.
You’ve probably found it necessary to work with freight brokers–even if you prefer to handle your logistics in-house. After all, a good freight broker can provide you with access to trucks you can’t find on your own, dynamic pricing, while offering some protection from the liabilities that come from sourcing trucks on your own.
Heading into 2023
As we head into 2023, most experts believe supply chain woes are lessening. Don’t let that news create complacency in your approach to your logistics needs. Now is not the time to settle back into a pre-pandemic mindset in relation to your supply chain. Now’s the time to strategize and make sure you’re ready for future disruption because if there’s anything we can predict, it’s further supply disruption.
The best way to inoculate your company from supply chain upheaval is to find a 3PL culturally and strategically aligned with your business. You need a logistics provider with access to the best small-to-midsize carriers in the midwest. A freight broker with experience, advanced technology, infrastructure, redundancy, and a commitment to relationships, accountability, and continued education.
