Celebrated annually since 1971, Women’s Equality Day falls on August 26, which is the anniversary date of the ratification of the 19th amendment, granting women the right to vote. The national day symbolizes the continued fight for equal rights for women and that our country commends and supports them in this fight.
Congratulations to Daisy Bustamante who was recently promoted to Human Resources Assistant! Having joined The Shippers Group almost two years ago, Daisy started off as a Customer Service Representative at our Wintergreen 2 location where she oversaw several different accounts.
When a business disruption like no other challenged supply chains last year, it was 3PLs who stepped up. From ramping up e-commerce fulfillment strategies to finding capacity where none exists to managing global trade upheaval, leading 3PLs such as The Shippers Group provided the needed solutions. In recognition of that effort, Inbound Logistics editors chose The Shippers Group as a 2021 Top 100 3PL Provider. This is the fifth consecutive year The Shippers Group as been named among the elite list.
What is Inventory Management?
Inventory Management is a crucial part of supply chain management. It is the process in which inventory is tracked on a regular basis to ensure that the appropriate inflow and outflow are maintained. Without it causes an increase in costs and other areas of inefficiency.
The Delta variant of the COVID virus is surging across the country, particularly in the southern regions of the U.S. If you have not been vaccinated, please consider doing so. The majority of new COVID patients are people who have not been vaccinated. Many people who have been vaccinated will also get COVID, but the majority will not become severely ill.
Last month, The Shippers Group introduced our newest department: DICE—Department of Inventory Control Excellence. As part of their efforts, the team conducts regular cycle counting.
Never in recent history has any other crisis tested the modern food and CPG supply chain like the COVID-19 pandemic. As the nation rebounds, what should 3PL warehouses do to ensure they’re well positioned to meet the needs of their customers and do well financially?
