The monthly series Ask Capacity focuses on questions from customers, service providers, and some good friends. We’ll take submissions via Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin, so feel free to ask our experts if you have a burning desire to learn about a particular fulfillment topic, supply chain trend, or even if you just want to know where to eat in the tri-state area!

Today we answer a question that every company should consider regularly as it grows: how do you define quality? Continue reading Ask Capacity: How Do You Define Quality?

Today we look at the importance of using the most suitable order fulfillment technology to ensure that you can deliver on your fulfillment promises to customers.

Although the East coast weather refuses to admit it, we’ve finally reached the lively season of spring. After a series of challenging snow storms and the disruption they brought to delivery schedules, the first day of spring is something to celebrate.

As you try to remember what a warm day looks like and get back to all of those outdoor tasks that you’ve been putting off for months, why not take time to give your business supply chain a spring clean as well?

It’s the ideal time to take stock of what’s gone well during a busy winter and, more importantly, where you think things can be improved. Continue reading 7 Ways to Spring Clean Your Supply Chain

Capacity LLC’s Chief Strategy Office and co-founder Thom Campbell left the wintry weather on the East coast and successfully made his way to Las Vegas yesterday, ready to talk logistics tech with anyone facing supply chain challenges in the coming year.

We’ll be bringing you his best photo-journalism here, but for the deeper discussion around supply chain technology you’ll need to track down Thom at the event itself.

“Planning is bringing the future into the present, so that you can do something about it now.”

~Alan Lakein

More than ever, technology requires us to consider what will happen tomorrow, today. Though supply chain operations are rooted in proven, reliable systems, technology is inextricably linked to logistics and drives rapid change here just as much as it does in other industries.

Next week we’ll be at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2015) in Las Vegas, all set to take in the next big trends in tech. We’re also eager to talk to technology-oriented companies about how our advanced EDI and order systems enhance supply chains just like yours, driving quicker delivery lead times and cutting waste from the fulfillment process.

Quotes about planning Alan Lakein

 

Just as tech companies need to keep on the cutting edge of their market, logistics providers like us must stay up to speed on the latest, greatest ways to move your products seamlessly through the supply chain and out to your customers as efficiently as possible. It’s the base that great technology brands are built on.

What happens, for example, if your customer wants your product so much that they’re pay a premium to have it delivered to their door within the hour?

That’s not the future, it’s on offer today in New York City from Master & Dynamic, a top of the range audio technology brand with whom we work to satisfy customer demand almost instantaneously. It’s the cutting edge of order fulfillment technology that everyone from local business to global e-commerce companies like Amazon are eagerly pursuing as a standard service.

supply chain technologySame-day and even within-the-hour delivery?

That’s instant gratification for a grateful customer, but that’s the kind of spontaneity that requires extensive planning and precision execution on your part!

If you’ll be at CES 2015 as well – or if you could simply use some help bringing your supply chain up to speed for 2015 – we’d love to talk to you about the latest supply chain technology. Let’s have a conversation that makes you rethink the old adage “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” These are solutions that you’ll want to take home and talk about.

You can call our sales team (732-745-7770 and select option 3) or e-mail sales@capacityllc.com to set up a meeting.

Here’s to a prosperous and increasingly efficient year ahead for your business!
