With the impacts of COVID-19, companies are having to alter their supply chains. At NEXT we are continually taking steps to serve BCOs, steamship lines, terminals, and 3PLs, with flexible solutions that meet the needs of a rapidly shifting landscape. Over the past few weeks here are some of the ways NEXT has helped mitigate challenges across the supply chain.
- One of the largest online retailers in America saw a capacity shortage limiting its ability to move goods from distribution centers into local facilities. NEXT met its client’s needs within a day, using NEXT’s hybrid model to coordinate deliveries throughout the U.S.
- A top 5 U.S. pharmacy has been relying on NEXT to address all of its drayage needs. As a result of partnerships with terminals at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, NEXT can offer its shippers access to goods three to five days faster than other solution providers, allowing this client to ensure all of the essential products its customers need are available.
- A multi-billion-dollar 3PL is utilizing NEXT’s yard space to avoid demurrage fees that many shippers face as a result of congestion at the ports. By relying on NEXT’s facility, just a few miles from the Port of Long Beach, this 3PL can ensure its shippers avoid unnecessary charges.
To help shippers get through the disruptions caused by the coronavirus, NEXT recently published a white paper outlining best practices for logistics planners and professionals. The free report is available here.
