Is Your Supply Chain Helping or Hurting Your Company? Don't Get Caught by Surprise!

Aug 24, 2017



Recently I was having a conversation with a CEO. We were talking about some supply chain issues and I asked him a direct question: "Is your supply chain helping or hurting your company?" When he responded, "I don't know," I wasn't too surprised because it's the same answer I have received from other C-Level executives.

So when I hear these same executives tell me that their supply chains are critically important, I like to remind them: "When it comes to supply chain issues, ignorance isn't bliss--what you don't know can be very, very costly." Practically speaking, if effective transportation management is an afterthought in your company, there is a good chance you are wasting money and hurting your profitability.

That’s why we’re passionate about our Rapid Assessment process--we can help people throughout your organization understand how your practices and process impact your transportation costs. We can also identify how trends in transportation costs can indicate inefficiencies in other places of your organization.

Watch this week’s video to hear examples of how we identified patterns in supply chain spending that needed attention.

In a Rapid Assessment we’ll take a look at the totality of your systems and provide a road map to your optimal plans.

We're on your team, we're here to help and we're passionate about seeing you be successful. If you have any questions, we encourage you to give us a call at 630-833-0890 or send us an email
