Business Process Outsourcing Pt 3 of 3

I would not be surprised if 1,000,000 such women were employed at any one time, at a time when the population of the country was far smaller than it is now. With advancing technology and efficiencies, a large percentage of these women lost their jobs. On a personal level, this may have been a hardship, but they may have found other jobs in other fields. Even if they did not find jobs, was this devastating to the economy as a whole? No. Except for relatively brief and mild recessions, the United State's economy was quite robust for the rest of the century/millennium (with the Tech bubble and the Real Estate bubble--a few years later--causing more concern and hardship).

 

A similar (but hypothetical) example is of a soft drink company. The manufacturing of soft drinks is useless unless they can move the product from the manufacturing plant to buyers. They may (or may not) have their own trucks to do this, but should they have their own railway, cargo ship and/or airplanes to transport their soft drinks? I would imagine that having their own ship would be tremendously expensive and inefficient and be a tremendous drain on their resources. To transport their product, they most likely would outsource their freight needs to an established airline, ship, railway and/or truck company.

 

In short, Business Process Outsourcing is simply a way for a company to be more efficient at what it is already doing. If a company is manufacturing furniture then it should continue to manufacture furniture, not to create a division or subsidiary that is engaged in transporting the furniture to buyers. In short, politicians rail against BPO for erroneous or inaccurate reasons, or reasons contrary to objective reality.
Now that you are also (hopefully) educated and informed about BPO, contact FreightArea.com to find out how they can help create efficiencies in your company.
