As you all know we are in the teeth of a recession and it is simply not going away. Every business has to review their modus operandi. Have you thought about reengineering your supply chain? Some of the following questions need to be asked:
• Are your fixed overheads too high for your current trading levels?
• Are rent, rates and warehouse handling costs sustainable?
• Is your fleet cost too high for the current volumes being handled?
• How much could you save by having a variable cost for storing, picking and transporting your products?
Why not explore your options with Independent Express Cargo?
