Did you hear the story about the new roll cage starlet?  There it was, looking forward to playing its first part in a Christmas supply chain pantomime of epic proportions; practicing, rehearsing, dreaming.

In just a few week it would be delivering all sorts of goodies to the shops- such delights as would light up the children’s faces on Christmas morning and give them a day to remember.

Then suddenly, rough hands, gruff voices, dragged into the rain, a tail lift, strapped together with other cages in a van - KIDNAP!

The owner of the poor little roll cage “What do we do?  We don’t have people who can track our cage down. Call the Peelers?  I think not, no kids or animals involved. 

But wait, what about those nice people in the black vans who bring cage criminals to justice?  Yes, ACQSYS!”

ACQSYS were brought in, scoured the land, lifted every roll shutter door, peeked in every unloading bay and questioned every driver in the realm until they found our little roll cage - dusty, a bit emotional, but with a heart as big as an Amazon fulfilment centre and ready to walk the boards again.  What a trooper!

Our little friend was last seen on Oxford Street delivering Christmas crackers and looking none the worse for wear, which is more than can be said for the evil monsters who kidnapped it.

Don’t let your roll cages be kidnapped.  Call ACQSYS, we dispense justice the old fashioned way.

Some of you may have seen the Supply Chain Strategies supplement in the Times yesterday and read the stories about some of the supply chain disasters and what we can learn from them. If you want to find us we’re right next to a picture of Ed Sheeran and those 12 valuable lessons on page 13 (lucky for some). We’ll also be in this supplement in the Sunday Times this weekend. There is also an article on the internet of things (IOT) from Senior VP Hans Thalbauer at SAP and how that might affect your supply chain. 

A global map showing world trade flows for the UK, Germany, US, China, Brazil Australia and China may also be of interest for those musing on the future impacts of BREXIT and US protectionism on their global supply chains.

As we gear up for the Spring rush and the Easter holidays there will be plenty of other supply chain disasters we can prevent with our roll cage recovery and roll cage rental services. 

We thought you might enjoy reading about some of these supply chain disasters such as the one about UK retailers at Christmas in 2014 and not planning for the final mile delivery, when everyone is trying to use the same delivery company which can’t cope.

We’ve negotiated a special complimentary copy of Supply Chain Strategies for you, click to download and read your very own copy either online or offline.  

Let us know how we can prevent abuse and shortages of your transit equipment and the likely supply chain disaster which normally follows.   Contact us now.
