Creating an energy-efficient supply chain is only possible if you understand its overall carbon footprint. Certainly, there are huge opportunities within the industrial supply chain for reductions in CO2 emissions – particularly on the ‘Final Mile’ - to meet stringent regulations and streamline costs. A 3PL or 4PL partner who is committed to researching and developing green innovation is best placed to find long-term solutions across the entire supply chain. Recent research into smart tracking and accurate reporting undertaken by Yusen clearly indicates that it is possible to improve the sustainability of supply chain solutions of any complexity.

Consumer tastes can change in the blink of an eye, often leaving the shelf life of your high value consumer electronics shorter than their production cycle. The latest mobile phone, tablet, or laptop is soon superseded by a new model, with value plummeting as consumers’ interest peaks elsewhere. In such a dynamic industry, long lead times for technology products are a particular pain point as your speed to market becomes a priority.

In the Consumer Electronics industry, if you don’t move rapidly to keep up with demand you simply can’t compete. The ‘latest’ smart phone or tablet keeps its title only for a short while before we’re wowed by the next edition. However, there’s not just pressure on consumer electronics companies to get a product out of the door, but also in how its dealt with if it ends up back in the supply chain.

Each shipment of consumer electronics could hold goods worth millions even billions: their loss undermining the market and badly bruising your bottom line. However, the costs of cargo theft go beyond the simple loss of product, with interruptions to the supply chain, supporting customer services, criminal investigations, and increased insurance all draining potential profit. When evaluating a 3PL partner, then, their supply chain security is crucial for the handling of high value goods whether that be the newest tablet, mobile phone or even crucial medicines and pharmaceutical products.

Being able to continuously improve is becoming more and more crucial in a highly competitive supply chain management market. Arguably, nowhere does this trend become more evident than in the Pharmaceutical industry and particularly in cold chain logistics, where the standards of technical, legal and operational scopes are especially high as they directly affect human life.

Innovation has always been one of the core principles of Yusen Logistics and our research collaboration with Cardiff University in 2016 undoubtedly added value in some demanding areas of supply chain management for customer-centric logistics.

Effective supply chain management for healthcare can do much more than improve your bottom line.

In recent years, the industry has recognised that cold chain logistics can learn a lot from existing systems championed by fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies to cut lead times and boost profits. Streamlined solutions not only prove cost-effective but also give you a more secure, robust, and faster service for your high value, highly sensitive products – and in turn more affordable access to critical medicines around the world.
