1. Automate as many processes as possible. Especially on the logistics side, we are seeing that shippers are not relying anymore on their traditional processes. A lot of shipments are being booked with a spot-buy exercise and you can automate that.
2. Put authorizations in place to ensure that people don’t spend on logistics unnecessarily.
3. Have a backup for your standard logistics service providers. Expand your logistics service provider pool to ensure you have a backup for a backup and never run out of options.
4. Prepare for what is coming. We have learned from 2008, the economic crisis, and 2010, the volcano eruption, that when things start to get back to normal you really see the impact and really require a robust system and process to ensure you can get your supply chain back up and running.
