Modern consumers value transparency in their relationships with the companies they choose to do business with. This statement is true whether you are dealing with individual customers or interacting in the business-to-business market. Whether you are serving customers across the street or on the other side of the world, if you aren’t providing them with value, they have few qualms about dealing with another provider.

The internet makes it easy for them to search for another company that can offer similar products to the ones your company carries. Since you often can’t compete in the area of unique products, it’s crucial that you develop positive long-term relationships with your customer base. This is where your core strategy comes into play.

Supply Chain Management and Your Business Strategy 

Your business strategy and company values should be the reference points managers use when making decisions relating to your supply chain and how best to serve your customers. Ideally, before any decisions about introducing a new supply chain management system or upgrading the existing one are made, the management team should decide on two or three goals the business will focus on when making decisions about how it will operate.

These goals can be used as a framework for making choices around your supply chain. For example, if one of your brand’s priorities is to offer a high level of customer service, it doesn’t make sense to look for shipping partners who lead by explaining they can offer the lowest available rates. Generally speaking, you will get what you pay for, and a company that is focused on keeping rates low may be willing to cut corners on the customer service side of the equation. There’s nothing wrong with a low-or-no-frills carrier service but if that doesn’t fit the niche market you are looking to serve, then it isn’t a good fit for your business.
