The votes have been counted, and the readers of Supply Chain Brief have spoken.
Ken Fleming’s October 17 column for Logistics Viewpoints, “Brexit’s Profound Impact on Cross-Border Shipping,” has been voted the top industry blog post of 2019 and named the 2019 Supply Chain Brief MVP Winner as the Most Valuable Post in the Transport/Freight category.
“Brexit is likely to hammer unprepared supply chain and logistics professionals and the customers expecting to receive their deliveries, but I’m encouraged that Supply Chain Brief readers echoed the importance of this monumental event and the impact it’s likely to have on global shipping, especially in and around the U.K. and Europe,” said Ken. “With several postponements, shippers still have an opportunity to prepare for the changes and ensure their parcel shipments stay compliant, on-time and under-budget. Our TMS for parcels will make the process seamless for Logistyx clients.”
By rapidly incorporating all regulatory and resulting carrier changes, Logistyx customers will stay compliant to avoid delays and fees. Keeping clients compliant with these type of changes is nothing new for Logistyx; it’s one of the company’s biggest benefits and why the industry’s top warehouse management systems and 92 of Internet Retailer’s Top 1000 choose our TMS for parcel. Brexit, however, stands to be one of the most impactful logistics hurdles of modern time. Country codes will change and trigger a wave of other changes. Export volume will skyrocket for many shippers. Currencies may fluctuate. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
