3 Simple Steps to Bypass Supply Chain Disruptions & Save Money

Worldwide supply chain disruptions have evolved into a lingering situation that has impacted almost every business across every sector. Whether it’s the scene of ships waiting at anchor to be berthed and unloaded at the Port of Los Angeles, the Suez Canal crisis, backups in Savannah, or massive redirections to the Port of New Jersey and New York, supply chain issues can be felt throughout the United States and the globe.

While your clients may be seemingly understanding of the delays, they have customers who may not be so. And you can bet your bottom dollar, everyone is exploring alternative solutions to get them the finished products or supplies they need. 

Even though there are global supply chain issues that may be out of your control, there are several steps you can take to expedite delivery. Let’s take a closer look at a few steps and best practices you can implement to improve your supply chain to make up for disruptions. 

Schedule Fast, Next-Day Expedited Port Pickup 

While you may not be able to exert much control while your freight is at sea, it’s imperative to maximize every second once your freight is at the port. And this means proactively selecting a trucking company with the capability to quickly pick up the freight and deliver it.

Don’t Overpay for Container Freight Station Transportations

The majority of businesses in Long Island and New Jersey are pleasantly surprised to know they can immediately save money and expedite shipping by selecting a preferred carrier for CFS pickup from the Port. Choosing a carrier is often in direct contrast to the standard practice of allowing the customs house broker to choose. 

The customs broker’s primary job is to help your shipments clear customs. Anything outside of this core service is likely to result in you paying a hefty premium, especially when they have to source and book transportation to offload your shipment. This also often results in delays. 

Instead of overpaying and adding even more time onto an already delayed shipment, the best solution is to choose On Track Freight Systems for fast port pickup. 

Diversify Your Supplier Base

While you may have a preferred supplier, it’s imperative to have backup options and a diverse supplier base. To get started, simply make a list of order fulfillment companies and suppliers for every point in your supply chain for the different services and products you require. This way, you’ll have easier access to different components or product suppliers in the event something goes wrong. 

Diversifying your supply base is simply the process of making sure that the right people and products are in place if a problem arises. At the same time, you should look for suppliers that have manufacturers and suppliers in several locations. This can also help mitigate the effects of supply chain disruptions. 

If you don’t know how diverse your supply base is, simply pick up the phone and reach out to your suppliers to discuss their contingency plans. You can also discuss how diverse their own supply chains are.
