For the last couple of years, there have been constant murmurings among logistics providers about an impending rise in rates. It’s safe to say that threat has now become a reality.

Manipulating your supply chain to achieve savings is not a new phenomenon. There are decades worth of transformations, case studies, and horror stories about what has been done well and perhaps not so well.
So, how does a company know they have built a competitive advantage?

The same observation could be made of many great supply chain executives. When Jeff Bezos set out to create Amazon as an unrivaled retail force, he hired away Walmart’s best supply chain talent. When Steve Jobs set out to create the best supply chain in the industry, he hired none other than Tim Cook to build the Apple supply chain and fulfill the Steve Jobs vision.
Maine Pointe’s pioneering Total Value Optimization™ (TVO) model continues to show that most company’s supply chains fall far short of where they could, or should, be on the maturity curve. However, it would be unfair to automatically assume that your supply chain organization is uninformed, unskilled, or uninterested in your company’s performance.
