In my career, I have seen how visibility technology has been the remedy to a labor disruption that shut down two coasts, a major carrier bankruptcy, numerous hurricane and tornado disasters, and a crippling explosion caused by dangerous goods. In these moments of crisis in which product supply is at risk and shipment custody is in question, the full value of visibility is made clear.
These measures, along with our unique culture and talented people, are what we believe elevate BDP from transactional supplier to trusted logistics partner in the customer value chain.
In the absence of supply chain performance and improvement measurements, supplier performance can and will deteriorate and the customer will allow waste to creep into its delivery process, thereby impeding efficiency and creating hidden costs. In my role, I ensure supplier performance extends beyond the proverbial rate and transit time indicators and that the beneficial cargo owner recognizes their own impediments to supply chain excellence.
With over 50 years of experience, BDP knows that complexity rears its ugly head at every stage of the delivery process - the final hurdle to satisfying demand.
But like the customers we serve, BDP understands that shipment visibility, quality management, and continuous improvement are powerful tools to avoid disruptions, mitigate risks and accelerate value creation.
