Peak Season Rush – Making the Switch to A Third-Party Logistics Provider
Just like that, we are rolling into fall and the holidays are just around the corner! Many businesses are well on their way preparing for the details of peak season and are looking for ways in which they can streamline their operations to navigate a time of increased demand. As businesses strive to meet greater expectations, it is paramount to have a smooth and efficient supply chain that can endure high volumes of orders with accurate product delivery.
It is a delicate balance trying to manage the complexities of a supply chain while still reducing costs and increasing profits. There is a great deal of orchestration that takes place behind the scenes in logistics. As a result, some businesses are on the verge of outgrowing their in-house management systems and are looking to outsource to third-party providers, so they can focus on what matters most. An efficient and well-maintained supply chain allows businesses to have more free time to focus on growth aspects of their company. It becomes is essential to find a partner who can support them through the process and help them grow.
The risks of not being able to keep up with increased demands
It all comes down to providing a great customer experience. With increased demand a challenge that companies often experience is not being able to scale fast enough to manage the peak waves. Adding new hires can be difficult during this tight labour market and navigating the surge of volumes can be quite taxing. Additionally, without a 3PL provider, most companies aren’t getting the best rates with their carriers and lack the complete visibility of their delivery process. This puts companies at risk of poor customer experience and the ability to be a strong competitor in their industry.
