The U.S. Inventory to Sales Ratio is at the lowest levels ever recorded, and the trans-Pacific shipping system has bounced against its max capacity ceiling.
At the current rate of sales,
associate professor of supply chain management
at Michigan State University’s Eli Broad College
of Business, suggests $65 billion in inventory will
need to be added ahead of the 2021 holiday
season to reach the inventories to sales ratio
held in 2019.
The most stolen items are food and beverage, clothing and footwear, auto parts, steel, tires, wine and liquor.
While most cargo thefts occur in the central and central-western regions of the country, the state of Nuevo León in northern Mexico which includes a key border crossing with Laredo, Texas has also been plagued by crime. In 2020, the state of Nuevo León recorded more than 550 cargo thefts, according to SESNSP.
According to CargoNet, the leading cargo theft prevention, and recovery company, trailer thefts nearly doubled in 2020 when compared to 2019 figures.
In 2020, Schneider achieved its ZERO full load theft results through a holistic approach to
security, which eliminates theft prevention gaps from beginning to end for truckload
and intermodal moves. CTPAT certification, multiple technologies, procedures, and
training provide a multilayered effect that strengthens the supply chain.
When it comes to hauling heavy automotive parts, weight capacity is of utmost importance—and inefficient hauls mean dollars wasted. While its previous carrier was limited to a maximum of 43,400 lbs., Schneider’s intermodal steelwheel solution for shipping allowed the manufacturer to haul up to 53,400 lbs. per load on the rail from Canada to Mexico.
By avoiding putting freight on a chassis and moving it across town on the road, the manufacturer was able to add the extra weight, adding efficiency and making every fifth load essentially free! This equated to big savings on the manufacturer’s bottom line.
