Culture Tips: Fast Delivery

Larry: Culture Tips

Saly: ວັທນະ​ທັມ​ອະ​ເມຣິກັນ

Eliz: Welcome once again to “Culture Tips” with Gary Engleton.

Today’s email question is, “Why do American companies expect such fast delivery?”

Gary: Well, it’s part of the general trend towards faster production in business.

Eliz: What do you mean?

Gary: Well, faster production usually means lower prices.

And lower prices make it easier to compete against other companies.

In addition, if you can get parts quickly, you don’t need as much storage space.

So it’s natural that companies want faster delivery of production supplies.

Eliz: But can they be delivered more quickly?

Gary: Absolutely!

There are now companies that can deliver supplies within thirty-six hours.

Eliz: Anywhere in the world?

Gary: Well, at least between major cities.

Express delivery costs a lot, but companies feel that it is worth the extra expense.

Any delay could be very expensive.

Eliz: That’s a good point!

Thanks again, Gary!

Now, let’s take a short break.
