Adjusting to shifts in production
Toshiba recently announced that it would be reducing television production in an effort to minimize losses from the department. As a result of these changes, the electronics giant will need to adjust its supply chain to be in line with its new production levels.
Reductions at one factory or increased production in another can impact the system in other areas like freight routes and warehouse management. Finding the right balance of speed, cost and efficiency could improve business operations and sales. Working with the right third party logistics partner can help a business smoothly shift directions to adapt to market conditions.
Reverse logistics specialists, like GENCO ATC, can help companies adjust to account for shifts in long-term strategy. By projecting future demand, the firm can create transportation routes to manage increased levels of freight, while keeping costs to a minimum.
Changes in factory production can also have a large impact on inventory levels. Proper management of warehouses and distribution centers can help minimize the disruption to vendors. Working with the right contract logistics company can provide firms with the ability to make changes to production and inventory smoothly and efficiently.
