The Curse of Complacency
On the surface, many distribution executives think their business operations are running fine. But don’t confuse a lack of overt supply chain problems with true operational efficiency. In fact, top logistics professionals recognize the curse of complacency can often lead to accepting average production. They understand the need to continually evaluate their service providers and at Merit, we couldn’t agree more. Indeed, we’ve built our national reputation by constantly challenging ourselves to raise the bar on service excellence.
Two questions every supply chain manager should ask of their third party logistics service providers:
1. Is my 3PL provider proactive enough in identifying continuous improvement opportunities?
2. Is my 3PL provider quick enough at implementing process changes and other supply chain requests?
If you answered NO to either of these fundamental questions, then you owe it to your organization to explore the many benefits of working with Merit.
At Merit, we take great pride in not only offering the highest quality logistics services possible, but in becoming long-term, trusted business partners for every customer we serve. We achieve these goals through the following core values that truly distinguish us from other 3PL service providers.
Merit enhances associate loyalty and cultivates a pro-employee culture through its peer managed programs, “Lean Thinking” and continual Process Improvement Training. And as a certified Minority Owned and Operated Business, the company values and promotes diversity.
1.) We Develop a Culture of Continual Improvement
At Merit, continual improvement is more than just a goal. It’s our mission. We’re simply never content to settle for average productivity. Instead, we’re constantly looking for ways to increase our efficiency and productivity and bring additional value added services whenever possible. It’s a proactive approach that ultimately leads to greater profitability for our customers.
2.) Positioned for Scalability
Today’s supply chains are constantly changing, expanding and evolving which is why scalability is critical for service providers. Merit can provide emergency support resources anywhere in the U.S., typically within 48 hours. We are also positioned to operate new locations, usually within 30 days, by marshaling our internally-trained workforce and management staff. As an independently owned and operated company, Merit is uniquely qualified to provide greater customer focus, responsiveness and flexibility compared to corporate or equity-owned providers.
3.) A More Transparent Level of Service
Best in class technology is a priority at Merit. We developed Mbi (Merit Business Intelligence) to provide customers with the most transparent level of service possible. Through this Big Data system, customers can see every single load from the time it hits their docks all the way through breakdown and final completion. Our proprietary software also allows for unparalleled reporting capabilities and advanced automation and is available online 24/7/365. The end result is a more effective, efficient and transparent level of service that benefits both Merit and the valued customers we serve.
4.) We Provide Greater Business Strategies and Insight
Merit never loses sight of the fact that our greatest resources are the high-caliber professionals we hire. To attract and keep motivated workers, Merit rewards employees with pay for performance bonuses and the most comprehensive company-paid medical programs in the business. It all adds up to extremely low turnover rates, longer tenured employees and greater industry expertise across the board. This allows our team to perform at optimal efficiency and productivity for our customers.
