Branching Out

The concept of hiring contract partners to undertake specific roles and responsibilities can seem rather daunting at first – there may be concerns about loss of control or interrupted workflows when work is conducted outside the central core of the business. However, when executed well, outsourcing can lead to more control and smoother processes thanks to the specialist knowledge and flexibility offered by independent experts.

Take, for instance, the use of third-party logistics providers (3PLs) such as GEFCO Forwarding, Brink’s Life Sciences and DHL Global Forwarding. Without them, manufacturers would be faced with the enormous task of sourcing, maintaining and managing an entire fleet of vehicles or warehousing functions before they could even consider shipping their first product.
