When creating the supply chain and operational logistics involved with international trade, costs can skyrocket when interruptions to the supply chain occur, as well as large delays that affect business. Many importers choose to source their own transport partners, which can backfire when a number of issues can arise. For instance, an interruption to a foreign transport company can cause delays, increased cost, and last-minute workarounds to keep your supply chain moving.
