We are aware that our customers that use FMi for the movement of their valued goods, or the inventory management and distribution of goods, have already begun to feel the pinch.
Our first advice to all is to ensure your own immediate supply chain partners are equally aware of these risks, that the supply of products may be delayed due to these issues. We are just now beginning to feel the pinch of both customer inventory supply into our Distribution facilities, as well as carrier capacity pressures as we shift some volumes from rail service to road.
We are in touch daily with all stakeholders to keep open dialogue to best manage the priorities of movement.
However, we like the rest of the country are unable to overcome the more complex issues without government involvement. We ask that you stay in close communication with your FMi representative to share your needs, and to keep appraised of the marketplace pressures so that we may continue to navigate through this as a team.
We are hopeful that dialogue over the coming days can put in place a resolution to the crisis, and that the supply chains can get moving again.
President, FMi Logistics
