Many small to mid-sized businesses need transportation and distribution partners to be most efficient, says Blasgen, since they often don't move enough volume to fill a truckload, for example, which is much more efficient than transporting a partial truckload. In recent years, partners like FedEx, UPS, and DHL have each expanded their rosters of services to small to mid-sized businesses, offering transportation, logistics, and freight services, among others. In addition, companies can opt for one of the many logistics consultants available to help design a more customized solution. The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals offers access to a wide variety of such consultants. In addition, trade magazines like World Trade and Supply Chain Digest, as well as portal SupplyChainBrain.com each offer numerous resources for companies facing supply chain challenges.
