Your supply chain has a lot of moving parts. It’s hard to keep track of all of them, but failing to do so can have unexpected consequences.
If inefficiencies creep into your processes, your costs can add up quickly. Costs that were not forecasted, which can impact your profitability.
Maintaining tight controls on your platform inventory (e.g. pallets, trays, containers) helps to eliminate potential unnecessary costs. With the right systems in place, and the right support along the way, platform costs should not be an issue in your supply chain.
You’ll know where all your platforms are, where they need to be and when they need to be there. It’s a balancing act that’s not always easy, especially when you’re trying to focus on your core business.
You can’t control everything that happens in your supply chain. But you can eliminate unexpected costs by keeping them from happening in the first place.
