How Logistics help my Company?

Logistics includes all the processes required to go from raw materials to end customer delivery, including purchasing, inventory management, warehousing, Transportation and even customer returns . All product-oriented businesses have logistics as a cost of doing business. Some may think it only applies to large businesses, but companies of any size can benefit from logistics improvements.

The good news is that any improvement in logistics you make results in savings in your cost of doing business, best of all, these savings drop right to your bottom line as profits.

Some examples of how logistics can help your company include:

  • Cost savings
  • Reduced inventory
  • Improved efficiency
  • Improved delivery time, which improves customer satisfaction and can be a competitive advantage if your competitors can't deliver as quickly

Third Party Logistics

Introduction

Today's logistics industry is undergoing a major transformation. Delivery of supply chain services is moving from the traditional mode to asset-based Third Party Logistics (3PL) providers to an arena with minimal boundaries. The ease and accessibility of thecollaborative economy has created new demands where virtually anyone can 'plug and play' in the logistics space.

Why Use 3PL?

Why would one consider combining outside facilitation with Third-Party Logistics? Savings must exceed 3PL costs and generate even more savings to justify a major business change. The two companies involved cannot individually justify outsourcing or 3PL.

  • To Save Time: Outsourcing the Logistics function can free up resources to focus on core competencies.
  • Because Someone Else Can do it Better: Even if you have resources available, another organization within the supply chain may be able to do it better, simply because its relative position in the supply chain, supply chain expertise and economies of scale.
  • To Share Responsibility: 3PL companies can share responsibility for managing supply chains, keeping customers and stores properly stocked, and delivering the perfect order every time.
  • To Re-Engineer Distribution Networks: Logistics outsourcing can be a quick way to re-engineer distribution networks to meet market demands and gain a competitive edge.
