Supply chain performance is measured based on time, cost, reliability and flexibility. A supply chain is as strong as its weakest link, which is difficult to identify when the process is fully outsourced. The total logistic costs vary greatly from one service provider to another, depending on their contract terms with shipping lines, their knowledge and even the routing of the cargo.
