Not only did he take the most product from A to B every day but he never logged an accident or near miss, was never late, and only called in sick once when he had food poisoning. He reported for dut...

Don't Bite The Hand That Feeds You

Undervalue suppliers at your peril, warns Sarah Spivey, managing director at Modulift. Most businesses are part of a supply chain; they consume products and services in order to market and sell their wares.
