In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain management has become an increasingly important role in the business world. Amid material and labor shortages, extended delays and other complications, many business owners have opted to localize their supply chains in hopes of simplifying operations and ensuring happy customers.
Localizing your supply chain can bring many benefits to your business, including:
● Greater Flexibility: Working with local supply chain partners, like Ohio Valley Goodwill’s Industrial Services Division, gives your business the flexibility to scale up, scale down, or change direction at a moment’s notice. When working with a massive, global partner, you likely don’t have this level of personal service.
● Cost-Savings: A local fulfillment partner can help your business reduce overhead costs and free up more resources to invest in your company. Compared to large, overseas suppliers, local fulfillment companies often offer competitive rates due to lower transportation costs.
● Faster Turnaround: Because local supply chain partners don’t need to ship materials back and forth between various locations, they can offer faster turnaround times. As a result, your customers may receive their deliveries even sooner, leading to greater satisfaction.
The word ‘outsourcing’ brings to mind sending projects overseas, but in reality, local outsourcing companies exist to make life easier right here in the U.S.
Local outsourcing allows your company to develop a genuine partnership with a qualified fulfillment partner in your own community, like Ohio Valley Goodwill!
