With supply chains spanning the globe, the shipping and warehousing industries face many challenges — especially when it comes to pest control. Their multiple locations and large inventories mean a pest infestation can affect all legs of the supply chain process. If product and supplies become infested, companies can suffer lasting blows to their reputation and bottom line. That’s why pest prevention and control should be top of mind. And the most effective way to combat pest problems is to implement an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan that involves ongoing maintenance and a partnership between employees and pest management professionals.
