The last few months have seen previously unheard of container and labor shortages in global supply chains across the world. Demand for vessel space is through the roof. Political shift in the United Kingdom, United States, and other countries are having huge impacts on the way the supply chain functions.
All of this is happening, and it’s still only January.
In the face of such complications, we’re taking a moment to reflect on what’s important—staying by your side and uplifting your organization, even when the going gets tough.
We’re Designed to Be Different
TOC was founded on the vision that a company should be transparent with its customers, optimized in its processes, and driven by collaboration. In fact, those values are what gave us our name—TOC.
From the beginning, we have been focused on providing value-adding services to our customers while deepening relationships with suppliers. In other words, it’s always been about the organizations we support and about providing them with the real solutions they need to grow their businesses.
We’re Here to Help
Everyone in logistics is well aware of the challenges our industry is currently facing. The vaccine, consumer goods, and manufacturing materials struggle to make their way through the strained supply chains of the world.
Meanwhile, our team is here, actively negotiating with carriers, vying for space, and developing creative solutions to get our customers’ cargo where it needs to go. These first few months of the year will likely continue to be hectic, especially with the Lunar New Year on the horizon.
The one thing our team knows is that we will see this through to the end and serve as a viable resource for our partners. We already redefined the way we worked in the face of COVID-19. We can do it again in the fallout of the strain placed upon our industry.
We’re glad to continue to serve you through such a momentous time in our industry, and we look forward to developing innovative solutions for you throughout 2021. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with our team. We’re looking forward to learning how we can help you.
