According to a recent article in Supply Chain Brain, the current supply chain crisis has brought to light an unexpected HR issue. Burnout from repetitive, mundane, and inefficient tasks is driving the labor shortage, with a 28% increase in supply chain managers quitting from 2020 to 2021.
At AiDock, we are constantly working with clients to improve accuracy on customs claims and build efficiencies across the broken process of managing all the documentation involved in import, export, multimodal logistics, and more. However, what we’ve realized is that we are not just providing a business solution but an HR solution as well.
