Unexpected Shipment Delays

Apr 11, 2019

FACT:

“Back in the 1990s when carriers had the on-time performance at the 90-plus percent levels, we could carry smaller amounts of inventory,” a Hong Kong-based logistics manager for a global sporting brand told Journal of Commerce Magazine in late October 2018. “Right now, we must hold up to 28 days stock. Another shipper told JOC; “The information chain is carrier-freight forwarder-us, so it takes time,” he said. “We prefer to have it much more quickly, but we buffer stock for unexpected delays. When it happens, we check if we have enough buffer, if customers will accept the delay, or if we should deploy airfreight.”
