    A Quick Look Ahead: RILA 2014

    - by Transplace

    I’m looking forward to attending RILA’s Retail Supply Chain Conference next week (San Diego, Feb 23-26) for a number of reasons – and not just because the weather should be better! First and foremost, RILA is simply a great gathering of diverse retail supply chain professionals.  It’s also one of the most focused industry events that I’ve attended, as it exhibits a targeted, almost devout focus on logistics and the supply chain matters with respect to the retail industry and associated service providers.  This conference serves the needs of all the key constituencies in the industry, including the supply chain providers and retailers themselves while keeping a keen eye on what makes it all go – the consumer.

    Polar vortex, snowmageddon, icepocalypse…frighteningly cold and icy weather has been splashed across headlines multiple times in the past months, and there’s more winter on the way.

    For the transportation industry, winter weather disruptions have frozen capacity, driving pent-up demand for trucks when markets re-open and wreaking havoc on schedules everywhere.

    Getting the Most Out of Your Freight Broker: Part 3

    - by Transplace

    Rounding out our 3-part series on getting more from your freight broker, we turn our attention to supply chain visibility and disruptions, and how critical this partnership becomes when the unexpected happens.

    The globalization of manufacturing and its supply chain has created a transportation network at considerable risk of disruption. Blizzards, tornado outbreaks, hurricane events and other natural disasters all impact regional infrastructure and vital systems within the affected areas.  But the true chaos begins after the event —supply chain disruptions are inevitable after large-scale disasters and political unrest. The more companies can do to improve their transportation visibility and agility, the better prepared they are to mitigate the impact of both major disasters as well as navigate around the daily disruptions, such as market fluctuations in capacity and pricing.  Below are five key steps to ensure your company and your freight broker are fully prepared for events that could disrupt your transportation needs:

    Building Safer Supply Chains as a C-TPAT Member

    - by Transplace

    Understanding supply chain risks and establishing security approaches is critical in today’s global market.  Another significant step companies can take to protect their supply chains is to become a member of the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program.  Organizations that are C-TPAT members fully cooperate with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), as C-TPAT was designed to build relationships that strengthen international supply chains and U.S. border security.  It works to safeguard the world’s trade industry while also maintaining the economic health of its members.
