Following driver shortages, warehousing shortages and increasing labour costs most companies have been faced with significant price increases for their outsourced logistics operations. Perhaps now is therefore a good time to review your outsourced operations with regards to both cost and service.
Many companies, whilst dissatisfied with their contractor’s performance and increasing costs will simply wait until the appropriate time to retender the operation. The disadvantage of such an approach is that in addition to the delay in addressing underlying issues, the same weaknesses in the commercial relationship are repeated.
By addressing the issues early, companies may gain the benefits more quickly and, in the event, that the operation is retendered, will ensure that the outcome is better suited to their needs with regards to the choice of contractors and the structure of the commercial relationship.
