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.

Living in a city it’s hard to consider oneself as a particularly fine example of a waste recycler. However when I think about it, the work we are doing at ACQSYS is at least having its own impact on the amount of fresh metal and plastic being manufactured every year.

This reduction in waste happens because we track down and recover lost and misappropriated roll cages and plastic trays, belonging to our clients, thus saving them the cost of buying replacements.  Those replacements would be using valuable raw materials and their manufacture contributes to the carbon footprint.  Our clients are not only saving themselves valuable capital, they are contributing to the protection of our planet.

Our new rental business rollcagerental.co.uk is continuing in the same vein.  When you rent from us we recover cages that you lose and not only reduce your charge for losses, but also keep existing equipment in play, reducing the need to replace it.  In the last six months alone we have helped one of our clients avoid purchasing £750,000 worth of new equipment.

So, the questions are:
How do you measure your performance against environmental targets?
Have you ever considered why you are spending capital every year replacing missing equipment that could be recovered, or even rented?

When you set out to buy new transit equipment this year why not contact us first to see how we can not only save you money but also help you meet some of your softer business objectives?

You may be surprised to find we can even help you to reduce your carbon footprint too.
