Leveling Up Your Efficiency in a Modern Landscape
Managing Director at Offshore Business Processing
In the past few years, we’ve seen drastic shifts in the freight forwarding industry. During the pandemic, shipping margins were higher than ever. Now, in the current landscape, forwarders can’t afford to keep operating the way they did in the supply chain surge.
With the global labor shortage, logistics providers find that supplementing their existing team isn’t just beneficial to their business– it’s necessary. That’s where many forwarders have been seeking solutions like offshoring and automation.
But as I tell customers, this doesn’t have to be a complete overhaul. When you partner with companies like OBP and Logixboard, you don’t need to build an entire infrastructure before you can see a return. Instead, with these solutions, you have the ability to compete against multinationals without spending millions.
In this new landscape, I’m not sure how you will survive if you’re unwilling to adopt solutions like offshoring and technology. That’s why OBP is partnering with tech providers like Logixboard and Shipamax, even if it means losing a few agents. We know this technology is coming and want to be on the front foot.
As freight rates decline across the globe, efficiency is the name of the game for freight forwarders aiming to maximize profits in today’s industry 💸
