How sharing a distribution infrastructure drives down costs and emissions
The biggest breakthroughs in supply chain efficiency will not come from the collective efforts of individual companies working separately. They will come from companies working together to store and ship the same volume of freight using far less energy. As logistics professionals, we must begin to view warehouse and freight capacity as more of a shared distribution infrastructure. When that happens, we will realize game-changing cost savings and dramatically lower the impact of logistics activities on global greenhouse gas emissions.
This paper will examine collaborative distribution strategies to share storage and shipping costs with fellow shippers, and the benefits these strategies can deliver.
