“The world has become a much smaller place.” Have you heard those words before? People say it when they mean that with modern transport and technology, we find ourselves in contact with places that only a few decades ago would have seemed unimaginably distant.
This has affected many businesses. Whereas in past times, companies would have focused on customers in the local region and sources materials from nearby businesses, now it is necessary to think globally. The internet has opened up global competition, and a person or business is as likely to source what they want from another country as they are from the local business. This has meant that businesses need to evaluate their capacity to ship goods on pallets long distances, whilst still ensuring that they arrive in good condition.
Is this change likely to slow down? Probably not. Experts estimate that in the years ahead, the internet will continue to dominate sales and link customers and businesses from different regions.
What does this mean for your business? It means that you need to have things in place to be able to ship your goods long distances without drastically increasing your operating costs.
