How long has it been since you considered your supply chain and how to improve its efficiency? One month ago? Two months ago? A year ago? In a previous blog post , 88.3 percent of importers feel that their freight providers are not technologically advanced. There is no room for error when optimizing and refining your supply chain, so now is the time to take a deep dive into your supply chain and analyze areas of opportunity for improvements.
In 2017, over $1 trillion worth of inventory was imported into the United States. If a small-to-midsize business imports $1 million in inventory every year, a 10% improvement in your supply chain can result in $100 thousand worth of cost savings. If you overlook improving your supply chain, you could lose out on hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of savings!
