When it comes to bad weather, most people think about the damage it can cause to homes and the personal lives of the people affected. But there's much more to an extreme weather event than that. Weather that causes chaos and disruption for individuals can cause the same types of problems for businesses and supply chains. That means that inventory and distribution issues can quickly start to appear, and the people and companies that need to get items to and from locations may start to see a breakdown of those items' ability to travel.
There's no end to the economic headlines that have been brought about by the coronavirus. The fear of transmission has caused people to head to the grocer story in record numbers across the entire US. But some of the most attention-grabbing have had to do with meat and poultry. These items can't be produced as safely as they were given the threat of the virus.
Distributors and manufacturers of all size know that inventory control is critical to maximizing profits and generating revenue. They have to be able to manage their inventory levels in order to keep the supply chain moving as efficiently and effectively as possible. When they have more control over their inventory and a better understanding of where all items are in the distribution process, they can make the best possible decisions for their business and for their customers.
