Pallets do the same job as ever, but the nature of that job is changing. Pallet management practices are shifting toward an emphasis on reusability as more companies establish in-house pallet pools. The cost-per-use equation is also including more factors, while providers of pallets and services are adapting their approaches to meet customer demands.
The inexorable force of digitization is reshaping the 3PL marketplace, with new alliances and partnerships reflecting that trend as never before. Warehousing and freight brokerages, meanwhile, are sectors of constant reinvention. Armstrong & Associates research indicates that one other ongoing development is also a game changer: global trade tensions and disruptions. "We are going to be taking a long view on how trade agreements will play out, and what their impact will have on logistics managers with their planning and forecasting budgets," says Evan Armstrong, president of Armstrong & Associates.
Mike Sherwin from the ISE department at the University of Pittsburgh and Jon Carmona from the supply chain team at The Poirier Group will tag team to bring fresh, innovative ideas on how to adapt supply chains in the face of the waves of disruption that are ahead. During this webinar, Jon and Mike will share systematic thinking on how this "Black Swan Event" is impacting the way we think about, plan, design, and execute supply chains.
