In a year that shocked the world, very few businesses managed to evade the negative effects of lockdowns, sick employees, and widespread uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In spring 2020, supply chain challenges impacted 94% of the Fortune 1000. By March 2020, Amazon Prime Two-Day Shipping became Four-Week Shipping, and empty shelves plagued grocery stores around the world. An invisible and unforeseen virus derailed even the largest supply chains, sending ocean shipping schedule reliability down to a 10-year low by January 2021.
As supply chains continue to adapt to a post-pandemic world, the warehousing industry is undergoing its own growing pains to meet the needs of the 21st century economy. Businesses of all sizes, from the garage start-up to international conglomerates, are expecting more from their 3PL (3rd Party Logistics) warehouse providers than just a storage space. Yet low vacancy rates are causing warehousing prices to spike, even for those offering only the most basic services.
In a world that is growing increasingly interconnected, fostering strategic partnerships has found increased recognition as a preferable alternative to the transactional business model that defined the 20th century. One innovation helping pave the way towards this model is the rapid expansion of coworking spaces.
One of the largest challenges presently facing the logistics industry is the ongoing driver shortage. Not only are trucks sitting empty that could be moving freight, but this inefficiency has caused shipping costs to spike. Raised shipping costs affect not only business costs, making goods more expensive to procure and ship, but the consumers who purchase those same goods that have risen in price, suffered delayed shipping, or both.
