88.3 percent of importers feel that their freight providers are not technologically advanced. This means that nearly 9 in 10 importers believe they are falling behind due to lack of innovative information from their supply chain partners.
In order to stay competitive in the digital era, supply chain innovation is imperative. Without constant improvement and evolution, your supply chain will become inefficient and cause you to lose business to your competitors.
In 2017, over $1 trillion worth of inventory was imported into the United States. If a small-to-midsize business imports $1 million in inventory every year, a 10% improvement in your supply chain can result in $100 thousand worth of cost savings. How you ask?
At the end of the day, importers need freight forwarding partners that can be collaborative and create fully integrated supply chain solutions that suits the needs of your import peak season schedule.
