Growth into new markets introduces new costs to control, regulations to manage, and supply chain complexities to solve. Longer, more complicated cold chains mean that collaboration with third party logistics providers (3PLs) can make the difference between profitable simplicity and unmanageable complexity.
Companies are increasingly relying on their 3PLs for services such as monitoring and intervention, contingency planning, and cost control.
Reduce risk by improving packaging, monitoring the product in transit, and establishing QA best practices. Improved visibility, new tools, new monitoring capabilities and appropriate packaging can also help drive down costs for shippers.
