Supply Chain Integration
Ensure that both your logistics and your supply chain operate efficiently. Your suppliers could be the same companies that supply your competitors and proper management could give you the advantage you seek.
Transportation systems are the links in the supply chain. For an existing chain, these are the easiest elements to evaluate. Changing your transportation systems could mean larger competitive marketing opportunities or more global sales. By asking the right questions and setting the right requirements for your carriers, you could lay the groundwork for success.

Giving proper attention to reverse logistics results in high returns, and those savings, like all logistics savings, go directly to the bottom line.
