Online shopping is increasing at a rapid pace and with every passing year, retailers try harder to woo the increasing numbers of online shoppers into buying from their websites. This has created stiff competition amongst shippers, who are constantly trying to outdo one another with faster shipping, lower rates and better customer service.
The goal of every supply chain management team is to cut costs while increasing productivity. Spend less and do more, it’s a simple equation that leads to success. Thankfully, becoming more efficient often leads to both a decrease in spending and an increase in productivity.
Protecting high value cargo is a priority for many logistics teams. Those who frequently ship and carry big ticket items know how important it is to make sure they reach their destination intact and without any damage.
Recently, King Solutions’ Director of Business Development, Peter Tulisaari, attended a retail trade show put on by the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA). Since the retail landscape is ever changing, as is the role of the supply chain for retailers, we thought it would be important for Peter to share a few key takeaways from the event.
In pervious executive interviews we’ve shared on the King Solutions blog, you’ve been introduced to key members of our executive team including Michael Patterson and Jennie Morine. Now, we want to introduce the team that produces the content that you get from us weekly: our contributors. First up is Peter Tulisaari.
It’s a challenge to ship and deliver perishable goods. It has to be done efficiently and quickly, and most importantly, the goods must remain fresh and clean. This is a challenging task that supply chain workers are more than happy to accept, and it’s one that we at King Solutions have a lot of experience doing. That’s why we have decided to put together a small guide on the best practices for shipping perishable goods.
