How to Keep Your Supply Chain Running Smoothly
How much time do you spend calling brokers or trucking companies? How many hours a day do you devote to getting quotes or updates or chasing down the trucks carrying your important shipments to your top customers? How much time do you lose to shuffling papers, printing invoices, paying bills?
If the answer is “ Way too much!” you’re not alone.
Disruption is the name of the game.
The last couple of years have been marked by one disruption after another with the Covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine having an immense impact on the global supply chain. For those of you in the manufacturing sector you’ve had trouble getting the supplies you need and delivering products to your customers. Truck capacity was tight and when you found a truck to haul your freight the cost was exorbitant.
Luckily, things have settled down a bit. But that doesn’t mean you should be complacent. In fact, now’s the time to make sure the next disruption won’t upend your entire logistics operation–again.
Keep your supply chain running smoothly.
Sounds good, but how do you do that when so many things go wrong? Just this week, scientists are warning of a new highly transmissible Omicron variant of the Covid-19 virus. And if meteorologists are correct, we’re definitely in for some heavy winter storms which will run right into hurricane season. In other words, disruption is the new normal.
But you don’t have to be blown about by viruses or storms if you find a good logistics partner. A good freight broker can connect you with reliable carriers, provide you with the technology you need to operate in today’s world, and keep track of your freight so you can get back to business.
