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.

 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.

At best, you’ll face expensive, expedited transport to fulfil retailers’ needs; at worst, you could lose those crucial sales and forgo competitive edge.

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.

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.

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.
