Industry Insights – November 2022

 

Supply Chain Industry Insights

November 2022

By Tim Gundlach

The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic continue to be felt in the global supply chain. As a result of unpredictable sourcing and transit times, the reliability of traditional “Non-peak” and “Peak” seasons in logistics is no longer applied. The global supply chain shifted from “just in time” logistics and instead implemented “just in case” logistics. The end result is warehouses becoming choked with products in preparation of the upcoming holiday season.

Suddenly the world which could not move products fast enough just as quickly faces a dramatic drop off in global demand due to global inflation and recession concerns as well as concern of escalation of the conflict in Ukraine.

The most recent concern in the United States was the potential for longshoreman and rail strikes. This routed cargo away from the West Coast, sailing to alternative ports on the Gulf and East Coasts. This influx of containers created berthing delays and port congestion in those areas. As of this video, US rail and labor unions are threatening a strike as early as Nov 19th, 2022.

So what’s next?

The short answer is nobody knows for certain… and it depends on how issues shape up on topics like West Coast port labor fights, Gulf and East Coast port congestion and the geopolitical arena with regard to the world economy, energy shortages in Europe, and the state of conflict in Ukraine.

Overall, we are confident about a few things going into November: (1) Ocean and air rates should remain flat or decline in the next month (2) The US Govt cannot allow labor strikes to occur as it would be detrimental to the US Economy (3) Port congestion and chassis issues should improve in time. (fingers crossed)

As always, PGL remains available to discuss particular needs and-or concerns at any time, in our continuing effort to assist in mitigating risk to our partners.

PGL Transports Flight Simulator from Airport to Airport

Nothing exemplifies the challenges involved in the shipping and logistics of large, sensitive equipment better than the crating and delivery of aircraft simulators. All flight simulator moves start with a detailed bid that covers the steps and expenses necessary to accomplish a move of this nature. The extensive experience that PGL has in moving this type of equipment leads to a comprehensive bid that includes the communication and visibility that is so crucial to successful delivery. Once on the job, PGL can supply the rigging equipment to the site along with the operators and credentials necessary to perform in a controlled environment for the crating and loading processes. Crating begins with engineer consultation to create a fully-customized solution that is unique for each aircraft. Special attention is paid to load limitations for both width and height, as well as accommodations for these sensitive parts. Everything is tightly packed to avoid shifting, and heat wrapped in a 32 mil poly to prevent moisture intrusion. Everything is tarped rail-to-rail with no exposed marine wrap to keep the avionics safe. Throughout the process, PGL keeps you informed every step of the way. For international moves, our partnership with TALA, The Aerospace Logistics Alliance, offers the transparency and peace of mind necessary for the task. From rigging and crating in a controlled airport environment, to successful delivery, PGL has the experience to go beyond 3PL with full-service delivery on a global scale.

PGL Moves Aircraft Seats for Exhibition

Going beyond traditional shipping and logistics, PGL is your partner for full-service delivery and execution. In conjunction with our overseas partner, we moved 6 crates of aircraft seats from the UK to the US for exhibition. Via air freight, we cleared the shipment through US customs, collected crates with a box truck at DFW International Airport and delivered to our Dallas warehouse. A hot shot box van was then loaded and delivered to the final exhibition space. Once arrived at the destination, our White Glove service team set up the show room and removed the empty crates for storage. After the event, the original crates were returned to the floor, the display dismantled and the seats were repackaged. The freight was tendered back to the airline at DFW for the trip back to the United Kingdom where it was cleared through customs and returned to the customer. From Europe to Texas via air and land, to the careful uncrating, setup and re-crating and trip home, PGL has the experience to go beyond 3PL with full-service delivery on a global scale.

PGL partners with NYC Healthcare Heroes

 

Starting in April 2020, PGL was honored to partner with the Red Cross in the new NYC Healthcare Heroes initiative, assisting in the distribution of over 100,000 bags of food, household supplies and over the counter medicine to the city’s brave healthcare professionals. This effort included delivery to 63 New York hospitals over the course of 2 months. 110 vehicles were used, leading to final mile deliveries to all 5 boroughs in NYC from Philadelphia arriving by 6:00am for distribution. As with any project of this magnitude, communication with our partners was critical. With the help of Aramark and FruitGuys, coupled with the passionate Red Cross volunteers, we were able to accomplish this monumental task. PGL is proud to leverage the technology and people that help our clients move their business forward to assist the Healthcare Heroes that are working so hard to see us through the Covid-19 Pandemic. Let’s move forward, together.
