Back in March when it became clear that we would be in for a very unpredictable year ahead, we were quick to point out that anyone who was not already good at E-Commerce would now need to be or disproportionately suffer from the slowdown in activity. Four months into the crisis, that seems more true than even we had considered.
When we started to realize that the current crisis was going to be much more than a small hiccup in our year, one of the things we discussed internally was that we would likely see a large bump in E-Commerce growth because for many businesses in some industries it would become the only way they can reach customers while their traditional channels were greatly reduced if not entirely closed – temporarily or permanently.

The digital revolution that is transforming the broader economy continues to shape distribution models as well. Increasingly business distribution centers are evolving to serve customers directly in addition to their more traditional roles as distributors for retailers and resellers.
Larger businesses are leading the charge to transform their own warehouses into world-class distribution centers. However, smaller businesses find it difficult to match their efficiency and speed with similar facility and systems investments. This disparity begs the question, “How can smaller companies keep up?” The best way to stay relevant is to outsource these non-core functions to better qualified partners instead of trying to match what large companies are doing.
Reverse logistics is already a fast-growing element of manufacturing and distribution, but lacks the wider understanding it deserves. As a result, many businesses that are unwittingly executing on reverse logistics are missing an opportunity to make it a smooth, efficient and potentially profitable part of their business as they would expect from other process areas.
This year has been another banner year for all of us and our customers at Newcastle Systems, and with the short week we have for the Thanksgiving holiday, we wanted to take a moment to take stock and share some of what we are thankful for:

It may not feel like it yet, but the holidays are already upon us. As a third-party logistics company, if you aren’t yet planning for the rush that comes at the end of the year, then you’re already behind. When it comes to logistics, you need to be ahead of the game, and the holidays are just around the corner.
Just like any other industry in the global economy, third-party logistics relies on technology to make things go smoother, faster and more efficiently for everyone involved. Advances in “smart” technology, data analysis and mobile devices all seek to make 3PL cutting edge in terms of moving products along the supply chain with as little pain as possible.
