Logistics as a Service: Do you need logistics consulting?
4 minute read
Do you need logistics consulting?
Are you resistant to the idea of outsourcing your logistics? We understand many small businesses operate under the mindset that they can and should handle all business functions in-house. But this is short-sighted and might be costing you money.
Ask yourself these four questions
Are you tired of a lack of visibility in your supply chain and would like to know where your products are picked up and when they are delivered?
Are you worried about an out-of-control freight spend and ever-shifting truckload capacity?
Are you worried that sourcing carriers, negotiating contracts, and changing government regulations exposes you to excessive liabilities?
Is your reputation at risk because of continued service failures?
If you answered yes to one or more (hopefully not more) of the above questions, logistics consulting could change the way you do business in 2020.
What is Logistics Consulting?
The consulting piece begins with an in-depth analysis of your supply chain and your processes. This examination and discovery gives consultants a broad array of information to help identify your problem areas. Having a wide view allows freight consultants to define a variety of options, as well as, creative solutions.
Logistics consultants focus on helping you increase productivity while cutting costs. Because they specialize in freight management, they can offer advice on order processing, materials management, dedicated fleet operations, quality carriers, and warehousing options.
And let’s not forget about technology. Advanced technologies are at the forefront of the logistics industry. From cloud-based computing and innovative tracking software to state-of-the-art transportation management systems and data analytics, technology mastery gives shippers a definite edge. Good logistics consultants have inside and working knowledge of the best technologies to fit your needs.
