How to Reduce Stress with Logistics as a Service
3 minute read
Did you make a New Year’s resolution this year? Or are you one of those folks who scoffs at the age-old tradition of turning a new leaf when the calendar changes? Either way, we’re betting that you’d like to reduce the stress you’re under. After all, if you’re trying to get your products to your customers on-time and undamaged, it’s likely you’re a bit overwhelmed and maybe even confused. And you’re not alone.
According to the Center for Workplace Mental Health, work-related stress causes 120,000 deaths and results in $190 billion in healthcare costs yearly. And the American Institute of Stress asserts that stress causes around one million workers to miss work each and every day.
These numbers are probably higher in the logistics industry. Technology is changing things on an almost daily basis. And government regulations like the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse along with adverse weather events can deplete truck capacity in a heartbeat. It’s no wonder folks working in the manufacturing sector are likely to suffer from undue stress.
