Supply chain challenges are expected to continue in 2023. Are you aware that IHA provides its members a tool to address these challenges? The tool, made available only to IHA members, is your industry shippers association otherwise known as International Housewares Shippers Association (IHSA).
Carriers always recognize leverage. Shippers with the most leverage consistently receive competitive rates and contract terms. Why is this relevant? IHSA combines member container volume for contract negotiation purposes. This provides IHSA with the necessary leverage to secure rates and terms only the largest shippers can command.
Our IHSA Team assists our members in many different ways. IHSA reduces risk by acting as your primary or dual-source partner in a still uncertain supply chain market. We are more than responsive—we are proactive. Our end goal is exceeding member expectations through:
- Consistently optimizing rates and terms
- Diverse carrier partners
- Responsive communication with both members and carriers
- Short- and long-term Shipping Forecasts
IHSA membership is ideal for IHA shippers interested in a trusted partnership that pairs our contract rates and terms with your consistent container volume. We hope you take the time reflect on the major supply chain challenges all shippers faced for the past two years. IHA formed IHSA to mitigate those very challenges.
We hope you allow us the opportunity to review how our IHSA team can effectively guide your company through the supply chain challenges looming for 2023.
