Logistics: A Resilient Industry
Lately there has been much debate and speculation about a potential upcoming recession in the US economy. It isn’t a pleasant subject, but it is a reality that we need to face together to work towards the best outcome. Fortunately for some, they work in industries that are considered recession-proof, and logistics is one such industry. This isn’t to say that there won’t be negative consequences – a recession may lead to slower manufacturing and thus less freight overall – but it is noteworthy that there will be plenty of opportunities to remain on the road. Logistics is one of the most resilient sectors of the economy and when combined with dedicated service proves how fruitful these relationships can be.
During recessionary periods, any breakage in a shipment is only exacerbated when resources are tight. Considering the costs of either fixing or remaking the product, it becomes clear that choosing a freight carrier who pays attention to your shipment and will deliver it to the end customer undamaged will help your business more in the long run. Your customer will appreciate the effort, and the relationship can deepen with more mutual trust and understanding, which can help carry businesses through. Companies also will need to make strategic decisions regarding their supply chains, and those who understand the value of a tight and efficient supply chain will side with carriers that have a track record of delivering shipments undamaged and exactly when they say they will.
