High value goods often require international movements, so it’s vital that your global supply chain is fully aligned and secure – from beginning to end. It’s not just the cost of goods in transit that heightens the risks you face; short lead times can also leave you sprinting for the finish line before the starting gun has even been fired. This, together with unanticipated increases in demand, could lead to missed product launches, stock shortage and disappointed customers which could even cause you to lose your market advantage.

Securing your supply chain is vital in every industry, but  for high value goods the stakes are even greater with the potential for costs to soar should something not go to plan. Whether during the launch of the latest hi-tech, the steady supply of sought-after designer trends, or the swift delivery of critical medications, your international supply chain could be worth billions at a time.

As the value of your product peaks, so does the interest of organised crime.

Beyond the simple loss of product, cargo theft or hijacking causes supply interruptions, a rise in supporting customer services, investigations and increased insurance. So, the safe movement of valuable cargo with secure logistics should be a primary concern for your 3PL partner.

Don’t Run the Risk: Supply Chain Solutions for Business Continuity

 

Everyone makes dynamic risk assessments each day, no matter your role or experience, whether you’re at work or at home. In fact, risk is anything that has the potential to cause harm – and for businesses it’s your bottom line that can take the hit. In logistics, without robust risk management procedures your supply chain could falter then fail when the unexpected happens.

Any risk manager will tell you that the unknown can seriously damage a cost-effective supply chain. So, identifying risk is the first step in securing your supply chain for long-term results. If we take a snapshot of cold chain logistics, for example, compromising a temperature controlled supply chain could risk hundreds of thousands in just a single high-value pallet. Business continuity, then, rests on your 3PL partner’s expertise in measuring, minimizing, and managing risk to your business for cost-effective and secure supply chain solutions.
