Is creating or improving visibility in your distribution chain at the top of your priority list? If your answer is no, we urge you to reconsider.
Supply or distribution chain visibility is part of supply/distribution chain management. Having visibility means you can see how well you are managing the “flow” of your goods.
Creating visibility can generate some major benefits for your company. Here are our top three reasons why creating visibility should be on your agenda.
“One-Way shipping” aka “Single Trip” aka “Send and Forget”.
Why would anyone ship goods on a plastic pallet if they can’t get that pallet back? Not so long ago, this was the thinking when it came to “One-Way Shipping” or “Single Trip” logistics. This logic was based on the fact that plastic pallets were expensive and it took several weeks to get them due to slow and infrequent production schedules. Today, it’s a new frontier.
