Since the economic upturn began post-recession, overall warehouse demand within the supply chain has outpaced supply. Many industry insiders believe that supply is beginning to catch up with demand. Yet managing inventory, warehouse space and transportation remains important.
Within the supply chain, disruptions are inevitable. When handled improperly, they can affect service levels and add costs. That’s why it’s critical to proactively identify disruptions. By implementing a robust process and taking action when shipments don’t go as planned, you can effectively manage distressed loads.
The prominence of supply chain management in the boardroom continues to grow, and there are some great reasons. Let’s start with the relentless corporate quest for year-over-year cost reductions. Then there is the competitive opportunity side, where supply chain agility enables a business to gain an advantage over others in their industry. Finally there is the risk management side of the equation, where the mitigation of potential supply chain disruption is a top priority.
Properly spec’d, well-maintained trucks and equipment. The latest on-board technology. A collaborative relationship between shippers and carriers. These are all elements that help support compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act, and they have long been hallmarks of Penske Logistics’ service to customers.
Look behind the scenes of any successful supply chain, and you’ll see a lot of technology at work -- for everything from tracking shipments to communicating with drivers to sending invoices.
