Stay Ahead of Parcel Shipping Spend with Technology Forward Services
The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals defines logistics as “part of the supply chain process that plans, implements and controls the efficient, effective forward and reverse flow and storage of goods, services and related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customers’ requirements.”
In today’s ever-changing world of ecommerce, the logistics chain is the lifeline of success. The fundamental key here is moving goods from their starting point to the end-user in the most efficient and profitable way. This process involves optimizing business essentials such as warehousing, packaging, tracking, handling, distribution, and even security. In our current on-demand economy where speed is critical, you need a strategy that’s more than just about spend, with an emphasis on innovation and transforming the way you do business with greater insight.
As you shift your focus and weigh your options, you should consider using a Shipping & Business Consulting Service like LJM Group as a solution strategy. A single source as such has obvious benefits that include improved bargaining power to reduce overall shipping costs and requires less effort in managing relationships with the parcel Carriers.
