Last week, The Shippers Group joined the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) in leading a webinar on our recently published white paper that addresses the question, “How does a third-party (3PL) warehousing company thrive during the middle of a global crisis?” Expanding on this topic from the white paper, Rob Doyle, President; Robin Siekerman, Vice President Marketing & Customer Solutions; and Diane Villafana, Vice President Human Resources & Safety Compliance talked about how The Shippers Group successfully navigated a global pandemic.
During the webinar, The Shippers Group addressed key topics within the paper, including:
- Food supply chain disruption, implementation of new safety protocols, changes in demand, the essential workforce, and the importance of scalability.
- How The Shippers Group was able to add dozens of new customers and open three new distribution centers throughout challenging circumstances.
- Customer collaboration and the essentials of a successful 3PL partnership.
- Adapting to new realities and the importance of best practices, continuity planning, recruiting, employee training, automation, and sustainability are critical as we look ahead to the future.
