On Time Shipping
Importance of On Time Shipping
Ensuring on-time pick-up and delivery is one of the most important measures for a 3PL company to do consistently. The supply chain is always getting more and more complex with added interconnected links. A disruption at one stage of the supply chain has several knock-on effects that will impact many chains down the line, maybe even the shipper’s customers. As a result, it has become vital for a 3PL to provide on-time shipping with every order.
There are countless factors that go into ensuring on-time delivery. While working in transportation, each factor needs to be monitored and tracked. If some kind of error arises the flow is disrupted and it throws everything completely off balance. This results in delays and disruptions if you don’t know what you are doing. Because of this, it is key to partner with a logistics company that has experience and a proven system in place to resolve any issue that arises.
When deciding on a partner in logistics make sure you choose someone that isn’t always running late. You can do this by looking over their past KPIs, giving them a test load or two, and by checking out any references.
When you partner with a 3PL, it is vital to make sure you can count on them to be on-time with the pickup and delivery.
