“It’s a Program, Not a Label”
Adding a monitor to detect impacts, tilts, and temperature excursions is good, but an integrated damage reduction program is even better. Involving shippers, carriers, and customers in risk management ensures a comprehensive plan that actually is effective.
Carrier buy-in may not come until carriers understand monitoring isn’t about assigning blame. Instead, it’s focused on reducing damage wherever it occurs. To do that, everyone throughout the supply chain must first know what damage is occurring, where and when. Only then can they address “why.”
Detailing the program to carriers and customers, providing written instructions specifying exactly what to do if monitors are triggered, and explaining how their input improves quality goes a long way towards gaining their support.
