Logistics companies keep the nation’s supply chain running during unprecedented disruption
The nation’s supply chain is facing historic challenges as demand is soaring for medical equipment, household goods and other essential items. Logistics companies are working hard on the frontlines, offering creative, nimble solutions to keep shelves stocked and supply chains running smoothly.
In recent weeks, countless companies have relied on Milestone’s nationwide network of 70 locations and more than 90,000 trailers, chassis and containers to solve critical logistical issues that continually change. This requires businesses to pivot quickly, and Milestone’s location-based online reservation system makes it easy for customers to quickly reserve a trailer or chassis whenever and wherever it is needed to meet surging demand.
On-Demand Storage Options for Overflow
To store the inventory of non-essential products that are overflowing warehouses while making sure they can get these products to market when needed again, businesses are using Milestone’s Mobile Warehousing & Storage (MW&S) solution. These are portable flex-space trailers that can be delivered in as little as 24 to 48 hours to provide customers a flexible storage alternative that is up to 50 percent less expensive than traditional warehouse space.
“As one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing transportation equipment lessors, we are dedicated to helping our customers adapt by delivering flexible, comprehensive and cost-effective solutions so they can transport freight as quickly and cost-effectively as possible,” said Executive Vice President & General Manager Highway Division Chuck Cannata.
