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.

With Brexit looming, there’s considerable concern about increased cost and delays for imports and exports.

 Looking for lift off with a new product?

It could be your most innovative, disruptive concept to date, with consumers itching to get their hands on the latest hi-tech, luxury handbag or designer fashion. However, if your supply chain management falters your supply fails to meet demand – and your product launch falls flat.

Don’t Let High Value Cargo Fall Off a Truck | Theft & Secure Logistics

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.

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.

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.
