Growing pains made worse by resourcing issues

A fast-growing manufacturer of blood plasma-derived products had reached its warehousing capacity. Due to the pressing demand for more supply, they needed to find a third-party logistics (3PL) provider to address their space limitations. However, the organization lacked an automated interface for sales and warehousing information to work efficiently with a provider. And, due to resourcing constraints, the local operational business team couldn’t manage the multiple cross-functional teams required to integrate the 3PL provider.
