In contract theory and economics, ‘information asymmetry’ deals with the study of decisions in transactions where one party has more or better information than the other. This presents an imbalance of power in transactions, which can often render the process awry – a sort of ‘market failure’, in the worst-case scenario. We know you need the right information and we’re here to find it for you so that you can come out on top. You’ve heard it all before, you say? We won’t tell you your freight has been dispatched when it’s still sitting in Johannesburg… We know you can handle the truth and will provide you with the documents and tracking to prove it
Forming triangles, circles and squares. Even Path looks at and analyses the detail, the product, the people, production, sensitivities in delivery, customer needs, cash cycles, your assigned KPIs and, most importantly, stretch targets. We will resolve your problem and find a better way of doing things – either by way of 3D-modelling your supply-chain process, or by analysing your historical data and methods.
Even Path believes in leverage – using something to maximum advantage. We find suppliers who are route-strong and responsible; who have freight and tell the truth; who have contracts to which capacity can potentially be added; and who operate in a transparent manner. Jumping between suppliers for better pricing can have a negative effect on the 4PL industry. Even Path will not cut suppliers servicing one of our companies; rather, we will consult and improve their offering, thus benefitting both parties. Even Path wants to preserve the industry and help our suppliers, working for them to analyse their routes and current contracts etc. to, ultimately, better sort their final journey and capacity.
