These are challenging times we live in today. Thanks to Coronavirus and conflict in various parts of the world, much of what your business depends on has been negatively affected unlike any other time in recent memory.Supply is being outstripped by demand in almost every segment of the worldwide economy. From shortages of raw materials and interruptions in global logistics to production delays, over-reliance on third parties, and labor shortages, it is a distributor's worst nightmare. Add the increased cost of freight, and getting what you need is more expensive than ever—mainly if you are relying on multiple vendors for the products and services your customers need. One estimate is that the average cost per purchase order hovers somewhere between $50 and $1,000 ($USD), based on the industry, with the average cost being $217.
It is not all doom and gloom though. There are ways you can weather this perfect storm of business killers and grow your business. According to KPMG International, a global network of professional firms, your operations should be flexible and resilient. Your technology should be effectively utilized. Your fleet management and supply chain networks should be responsive. And you should initialize collaborative supplier partnerships.
It is this last point, "you should initialize collaborative supplier partnerships", that can make the most significant positive impact on your business. Particularly, if you seek the services of a company like Logistics Supply, featuring a nationwide redistribution platform, which can help you mitigate all of the problems associated with today's supply chain issues.
