There is trouble everywhere in the global supply chain.
With over 50 years experience managing retail POP display and packaging projects for a wide variety of products, we’ve seen just about everything that can go wrong in a retail campaign that starts with products and brands being made on one side of the world and finishes with delivery and sale on the other.
Here Comes Trouble
It can be a tricky path to navigate. Trouble comes in many forms. It travels by air, sea and rail. It’s packed into shipping containers and it shows up rudely on the loading dock just when you can start to catch a glimpse of the finish line. It disguises itself as a small thing early in the process and then when you overlook it, it grows into a budget-swelling, deadline-sabotaging mess.
It is no coincidence that our clients have come to think of us as troubleshooters. No matter how beautiful or innovative our displays may be, our expertise in navigating global supply chain logistics is without question the most valuable skill we bring to the retail campaign.
Find It Before It Finds You
It starts with asking the right questions and an intimate knowledge of what can go wrong. It’s one thing to have the skill and experience to get a campaign back on solid footing when trouble strikes. It’s exponentially better to have the knowledge you need to keep it from cropping up in the first place. As we frequently tell our clients, there are no small problems in a global supply chain that has to bridge language, culture and timing gaps. Every little small issue has the potential to grow into something that can create havoc on your campaign down the line.
Our whitepaper, Eliminating the Pain From Your Global Supply Chain, includes some best practices for avoiding trouble in the global supply chain. It will help you to identify common supply chain mistakes, close the gaps in your supply chain and – perhaps most importantly – create a repeatable strategy for success. In addition to strategies for avoiding supply chain missteps, you’ll learn:
- Common supply chain errors
- Frequently overlooked supply chain costs
- Selection criteria for choosing an offshore supplier
- How to create a culture of success among your partners
