The transport and distribution industries have prospered in recent years on the back of two major shifts in the way the world works - globalisation and the Internet. Globalization means the opening up of markets around the world – enabling manufacturers to access both consumers for finished products and suppliers of parts and components. In addition, the Internet has revolutionized the way consumers and business buy things. These two changes have driven demand for transportation and distribution services – everything from domestic delivery services to sophisticated multi-tier, multi-country complete logistics service solutions.
At the same time, rising fuel prices and increased regulations to foster border security and product safety have created new challenges for wholesale and distribution companies. These and other factors are causing shifts in both supply networks and demand patterns, creating a state of continual change. Many distributors are now also providing light manufacturing, assembly and final kitting to support customers’ globalization plans. All of these services are expected to be faster and more efficient each year, regardless of cross-border regulatory delays and the threat of piracy and counterfeiting.
Making distribution work in a highly responsive manner and keeping it efficient is no mean feat. Cambashi works not only to understand distributors’ challenges, but also those of the manufacturers and retailers that increasingly rely on them. It is by providing solutions to client that enable visibility and confidence in the supply chain that distributors can thrive.
