Issue instructions in writing

Always put your requirements in writing to avoid misunderstandings.  What is completely obvious to you may be seen much differently by another person.  Don’t assume your suppliers and/or logistics service providers know what you are thinking (e.g. “Of course I wanted that to go by airfreight…it’s our year end!”).

Eliminate the possibility of errors by clearly communicating your instructions in writing and then having a record in the event things do go wrong.
