Who We Serve: Technology

Who We Serve - Technology

Tech innovators extend far beyond the Bay Area.

From Boston to Austin, Atlanta to Guadalajara, and Toronto to Toledo, tech companies inhabit nearly every city in North America. This vast reach has allowed such companies to take advantage of new markets and new talent, contributing to the enduring success of the United States and her neighbors in global technology development. But as companies extend from one metro area to hundreds, so must their supply lines. Planning deliveries across hundreds of cities and thousands of miles is no easy task, especially when those deliveries involve the unique inputs tech companies rely on.

The Unique Challenges of Modern Tech

Modern tech companies must overcome all the worst logistical challenges that other industries have to deal with, combined. Most non-tech companies must address at least some of the following issues, but it’s rare to confront them all unless you’re a tech innovator.

Unique Parts

Unique Parts

Modern technology is made of rare materials that are available from only a handful of places on the continentand that can’t be easily replaced. There’s little or no margin for error in getting supplies from those locations. If a shipment falls through, your company doesn’t have much choice but to wait for another one. It also means that lots of other tech companies are likely to have shipments coming from that location at any given time, so you’re competing with their suppliers for road or air space.

Delicate Deliveries

Delicate Deliveries

Not only are the parts tech companies need highly unique, but many are also extremely delicate. The slightest turbulence during the drive or flight from your supply point to your destination can render them unusable, or at least require expensive repairs that further delay your operations. It's critical that your items are delivered by highly competent suppliers who know how to keep items safe while traveling fast enough to get them to you on time.

Strict Schedules

Strict Schedules

Tech companies pride themselves on solving the world’s most pressing problems, so when they promise a new product by a certain date, they have to deliver. There’s not a lot of opportunity to build redundancy into their delivery schedules. If key inputs don’t arrive on time for products to be made, dire medical, environmental, financial, and public safety consequences can result. Tech companies not only need deliveries that are fast on average, but they also need as little deviation from that average as possible.

Tech Company Shipping Challenges

Successful tech companies are aware of these challenges.

Tech companies plan their operations around these challenges, finding suppliers who deliver quickly and safely. Regardless of the skill and professionalism of your standard supplier, your key deliveries can still be impacted by unforeseen circumstances. When that happens, it’s no excuse to say to your customers or investors that you did everything right and were a victim of circumstance—you still need to right the ship and get things back to business as usual, and fast! The only solution is to find an expedited delivery broker that can pick up where your standard supplier left off.

Wind turbines can be as tall as an 85-story building with a blade radius of an acre. Transporting just one wind turbine can take up to nine separate shipments.

With requirements like this, it's critical to work with the right 3PL provider that can flex with your needs when situations and requirements change.
