Challenge: Global e-commerce sales have surged from $3.35 trillion from 2019 to an expected $5.4 trillion in 2022, putting e-commerce merchants under unprecedented pressure to address customers’ growing demands for fast and frictionless delivery. In fact, 42% of online shoppers have abandoned their shopping carts because of lengthy delivery dates, and more than 40% of shoppers expect an option for 2–3 day delivery.

Speed and accuracy are critical to the success of any e-commerce company, and continuously evolving expectations can make it difficult to ensure customer satisfaction while navigating organizational growth.

Challenge: The disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have sparked a lot of talk about supply chain resilience. To prevent supply shortages, many retailers are doubling up on suppliers, sourcing closer to home, strengthening inventory levels, and investing in their own logistics networks, all of which can come at the expense of higher costs that are eventually passed on to end customers. Some retailers have even overestimated inventory needs and have become stuck with excess inventory that must be stored long-term or marked-down for quick sale.

It can often be difficult for retailers to match available warehouse space with constantly changing demand, which can lead to surplus or shortage.

Solution: With a focus on agility, allocating resources flexibly and swiftly to where they’re needed most, Iron Mountain warehousing and logistics can help you prepare for anticipated seasonal demand spikes and respond to unanticipated disruptions. We maintain warehouses throughout the US and Canada, with a focus on quick onboarding, technology-enabled integration, and contract terms that can be measured in months instead of years.

What you gain:

  • Agility and speed: We’ll help drive agility with quick setup, onboarding, and receiving of materials into our dedicated warehouses.
  • A network of warehouses throughout North America: We can support you no matter what part of the country you need warehousing, with facilities in major markets including Southern California, New York/New Jersey, Chicago, Atlanta, and Toronto.
  • Flexibility to meet your specific needs: Stocking up for Christmas or back to school? Preparing for a raw material shortage? Looking for a long-term warehouse solution? With our flexible service agreements, we’ll find a solution that meets your needs.

Challenge: The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic exposed various weaknesses in our preparedness for unexpected emergencies. As many large manufacturers shut down or stopped exporting goods, stocks of critical supplies and equipment quickly ran out. Although necessary, items such as masks, gloves, shields, goggles, and ventilators were scarce, which prevented many healthcare organizations from fully supporting patient needs.

These issues are not exclusively associated with global pandemics. Emergency events or natural disasters such as hurricanes, wildfires, or even terrorist attacks can cause unprecedented and unanticipated immediate needs for emergency supplies. Often, the nature of the emergency can make it difficult or even impossible to transport resources from other areas, and issues like theft or price gouging can occur. Furthermore, many healthcare facilities don’t have excess space or it can be too cost-inhibitive to store these supplies onsite.

Solution: Iron Mountain warehousing and logistics can store and deliver your emergency response equipment and supplies so that you can access them in the event of a disaster or medical emergency. Our secure network of facilities located throughout North America will ensure a fast and seamless response, helping you focus on patient care during an emergency. We have the ability to store, manage, kit, and deliver:

  • Medical supplies (masks, gowns, face shields, etc.)
  • Medical equipment (wheelchairs, IV poles and supplies, respirators, etc.)
  • Non-hazardous test kits, common medication, and first-responder equipment (first-aid kits, canned goods, flashlights, shelters, etc.)

What you gain:

  • Better use of facility space: Use onsite space to treat patients, not store materials and equipment.
  • Secure storage of medical and emergency supplies: Protect supplies and equipment from loss, theft, or damage.
  • Quick response in case of an emergency: Be prepared to respond to the next natural disaster, pandemic, or other emergency.

Challenge: Ongoing uncertainty and disruptions are forcing organizations to reevaluate and rethink their manufacturing footprint strategies. Many organizations are focused on building or expanding facilities closer to end users, with a recent survey showing around 83% of North American manufacturers likely to reshore production (Thomas Survey).

This shift to localization can cause challenges for the logistics function, especially as the manufacturing strategy continues to evolve. Fixed product distribution networks can be costly and take time to build out, and it may not be feasible to maintain in-house warehouse and labor assets in all localized markets.

Solution: Iron Mountain warehousing and logistics can support your evolving manufacturing footprint strategy by supplementing your product distribution network with local warehousing, labor, and transportation resources. With facilities located throughout North America and a flexible approach to service agreements, our services provide the support that you need to build an agile product distribution strategy.

What you gain:

  • A network of warehouses throughout North America: We can support you no matter what part of the country you need warehouse space and resources, with facilities throughout North America.
  • Agility and speed: We’ll help drive agility with quick setup, onboarding, and receiving of materials into our dedicated warehouses.
  • Flexibility: Our flexible approach to service agreements will help ensure alignment of your product distribution strategy with your evolving manufacturing footprint strategy.
