Supply Chain Management Solutions
When outsourcing a transportation logistics provider to help manage your supply chain, it's important to consider your most vexing problems first; What tasks or responsibilities are causing your biggest headaches? Have you measured your KPIs (Key Performance Indicators)? What is your overall supply chain strategy? It's crucial to assess these key components of your operation first, to better determine which logistics company will best fit your needs.
Before reaching out to any logistics service providers, think about the way your team addresses your common supply chain challenges. The logistics service provider you choose should be well-informed about these common (and uncommon) challenges and should offer individual attention to detail in mastering those issues for you - in ways that best fit your needs. After all, your company comes first.
What kind of automation technology does your operation utilize? How do you transport your merchandise from point A to point B and what kind of freight transportation company do you typically trust to move your merchandise? Are you able to track your freight as it's being moved from shipping to receiving facilities? Does your business require warehousing on site, or do you prefer a third-party provider expedite those operations for you? These are all important factors to notate when considering logistics options, as SCM and logistics companies come in all shapes and sizes, and might not offer the best solutions to your SCM problems.
Outsourcing the transportation management portion of your SCM operations will help you minimize cost, have more flexibility to focus on the core competencies of your company's operations, and meet the demands of your customers more effectively.
