EVERY MOVE COUNTS IN GROCERY  

The recent global pandemic underlined just how critical it is for grocery retailers to keep product flowing through their operations. We’ve built our company and our processes to protect our customers from the risk of supply chain disruption. NSSL is committed to:

  • Providing unwavering support to our North American partners.
  • Equipping all grocery sites with temperature monitoring required for perishables
  • Consistently providing our customers with unmatched visibility through our YMS
  • And More

WE'RE IN TUNE WITH YOUR CHALLENGES

If you’re facing any of the following in your business, NSSL can help.

DRIVER SHORTAGES

The logistics industry is known for a high turnover rate for the drivers you depend on to transport essential goods.

VOLUME FLUCTUATIONS

When the pendulum swings widely between high and low volume, you need a logistics solution that’s not one-size-fits-all.

EQUIPMENT SHORTAGES

When older equipment breaks down or is overutilized due to demand, you may be left scrambling to rearrange.

VISIBILITY

Uncertainty about where goods are in the fulfillment process can cause redundant work and unnecessary confusion.

MITIGATING FUTURE RISK

You may be wondering how to prevent the challenges of today from hurting your business in the future.

NAVIGATING DISRUPTION WITH OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE

As dedicated partners, we’ve created our yard management programs to align with the challenges facing the grocery industry. Here’s how we help:

SUPPLY CHAIN CONTINUITY PLAN

Whether you’re just down the street or hundreds of miles away from one of the other yards we service, our expertise and resources come together to prevent any disruption to your operation due to staffing challenges. We have a structured plan that allows us to leverage…

  • Additional NSSL drivers in our network
  • Third-party contractor partners that we have vetted for safety and reliability
  • Fully licensed field supervisors who can fill in if drivers need support

DRIVER RESOURCES & RECRUITMENT

NSSL has been successful in recruiting and retaining drivers due to a people-first, training-forward approach. Here’s how we help:

  • Our cross trained network of drivers is available to help you alleviate shortages
  • We offer driver services aid, in times where your trucks may be sitting idle

LOGISTICS ADVICE

Don’t need extra services, just someone to talk to about your challenges? We can help with that, too. Here’s how:

  • Offering advice from our veteran team of yard management leaders
  • Experience in grocery and retail
  • Expertise in all aspects of yard management: shuttling, gatehouse, YMS, field operations, and more

LATE-MODEL, WELL-MAINTAINED EQUIPMENT

When you’re under pressure, relying on older equipment is a gamble. That’s why we use only late-model yard vehicles to ensure:

  • Reliability
  • Maneuverability
  • Fuel efficiency
  • Reduced carbon emissions

ON-DEMAND SHUNTING

We offer on-demand shunting to help shippers of grocery goods bridge the gap when volume fluctuations make a dedicated solution challenging to sustain. Here’s what on-demand makes possible for you:

  • Stop paying for staff you don't need and pay for help when you need it
  • Have confidence that your driver will show up on time, ready to work
  • Subscribe to a service that can flex from a day to day basis
  • Be a part of a sustainable solution through customer based resource sharing
