Growth in 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 help 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, visibility, and
establishing QA best practices.
Improved visibility, new tools, new monitoring
capabilities and appropriate packaging can also help
drive down costs for shippers.
