In the world of logistics and distribution business, a warehousing system has to adapt quickly to the changing environment. The idea of keeping up with orders, both in Business-to-business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumer (B2C) has changed. Currently, the trend is about leveraging competitive advantage, to deliver profitably and seamlessly in response to customers’ needs. Whether at the customer’s warehouse or the customer’s front door, they expect flawless service and instant response to their demands.
Rising consumer expectations are driving change throughout the business system. It is now required to manage increasingly complex logistics and distribution processes while improving efficiency, customer service and maximizing profitability. Business capabilities to meet these objectives are constantly being challenged. It is becoming very difficult to deal with surges like seasonal demands where businesses are faced with intensified labour schedules, increased customer orders, and complex transportation plans. In order to deal with these challenges, it is essential to integrate, streamline and automate the business system processes.
Improving Logistics and Distribution Processes:
Every business has different requirements and perspectives. However, the need for changing your business system arises when certain benchmarks are not met. Ask yourself –
• Are your warehouse operations and processes flexible enough to meet customers’ demands?
• Can you meet customer requirements for shorter delivery times?
• Are you able to dynamically adjust labour plans and workflows to react to changes in your business?
• Are your back-office systems such as Accounting, Sales, Inventory management and Warehousing, and CRM departments disconnected/fragmented?
• Can you scale quickly to handle e-commerce fulfilment complexity?
• Do you have the right technology platform to maximize your workforce productivity?
• Will new technologies leave your IT system lagging behind?
