    High-tech companies are making strategic shifts to their supply chain models to enable greater customer-centricity, meet changing consumer demand patterns and capture new growth opportunities. Findings come from the 4th annual global UPS Change in the (Supply) Chain survey, conducted by IDC Manufacturing Insights.

    Interest in near-shoring has more than tripled since 2010. Globally, 27% of high-tech logistics executives are embracing near-shoring as one strategy to improve their customer service. When asked globally about the top drivers for near-shoring, 77% said they wanted to improve service levels by bringing production closer to demand and almost 55% cited improving control over quality and intellectual property.

    Other high-tech executives, including 82% in the U.S., will continue to use their existing supply chain strategies. Survey respondents cited the cost benefits of low-cost manufacturing countries and the location of key suppliers as the top reasons for not considering near-shoring.

    UPS Info for UPSers Innovative software cuts miles, reduces fuel and sets stage for more personalized customer services

    UPS® announced the launch of its impactful route optimization software known as ORION, which stands for On-Road Integrated Optimization and Navigation. ORION has a team of 500 dedicated resources to move the U.S deployment forward as UPS nears its busy holiday season.

A reduction of just one mile each day per driver over the course of a year saves the company up to $50 million annually.
