Shared Distribution Strategies: Corrie Banks from Triskele Logistics

Shared Distribution creates a ‘sharing model’ to allow partners to combine Supply Chain infrastructure, assets, and technology to consolidate lower volume orders together on smaller volume routes. This combining/consolidating can help to optimize routes, reducing excess capacity, leading to cost reductions and increased sustainability in your Supply Chain. In short, you look for other organizations who are moving low volume orders to partner with to fill the excess capacity on a truck.
