    Be aware of objective dangers in logistics

    This year's lesson in logistics: Our industry's ability to serve customers often remains at the mercy of events out of our control. Port gridlock that lasted for months at West Coast ports, a truck drivers’ strike in late April in the LA/Long Beach port complex, and the compounded effect of regulation on an already existing shortage of truck drivers carrying our goods are just a few examples of what we in the mountaineering community call “objective dangers” — avalanches, rock fall, lighting strikes and such — all those things outside the climber’s own control.

    Signage important in the sale

    "Sign, sign, everywhere a sign. Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind.” With all necessary apologies to ’70s rock group Five Man Electrical Band, signs have their place. They are an important part of the retail scenery. After all, once your consumer sees what she wants, the signs give her the rest of the vital information. Signs can break the ice and introduce deals.
