Partner Logistics Looks at the Bigger Picture

Partner Logistics Looks at the Bigger Picture

Over the last ten years the way the frozen food supply chain operates has changed significantly as a result of a number of factors such as increased consumer demand, a bigger focus on sustainability and pressure to keep costs low.

Partner Logistics, along with many other warehouse providers, has traditionally been independent within the supply chain, focusing on optimising its primary storage service rather than linking with others and having an overview of the supply chain as a whole.

However, the benefits that come from collaborating with other parties to offer an integrated solution are undeniable. Whilst offering an individual service made business sense ten years ago, the solutions that customers increasingly require can now be provided in the most productive way when stakeholders in the supply chain work together with a common goal and in an integrated way.

With prices currently at their lowest ever level due to the economic recession in Europe, logistics service providers are facing the constant challenge of reducing empty mileage, optimising transport movements and looking closely at network density to drive up efficiency and lower costs further. Collaboration plays a key role in overcoming these challenges as logistics providers can share vital information which leads to customers receiving the best possible supply chain solution available.

PartnerLogisticsLogoIn order to support its integrated logistics service, Partner Logistics has established an in-house supply chain development team tasked with creating partnerships and maximising the efficiency of customers’ supply chains.

It offers three added-value services for customers:

  • Transport – reducing carbon emissions and road miles through collaborating with carefully-selected transport and distribution companies to consolidate shipments.
  • Warehousing – incorporating value-added logistics service capabilities such as re-palletisation, stickering and re-packing as well as storage.
  • Supply chain development – combining transport, warehousing and value-added services to redesign and optimise the end-to-end supply chain.

By implementing solutions that utilise the above, Partner Logistics is looking to the bigger picture. For further information visit www.partnerlogistics.eu.
