Today’s transformations of Logistic in Supply Chain Management
The Global Pandemic of Covid-19 changed the face of the supply chain industry. The sudden lack of manual power severely hampered the day-to-day operations of businesses. Fortunately, we are in a time where we have proper resources to recover those losses with the help of innovation in the field of Logistic Execution.
Our Logistic Execution expert, Andreas Holtschulte, talks about the post-Covid transformation of logistic in the supply chain management industry.
What is Logistic Execution?
It is a service offering all necessary functions for mapping the Execution of all logistics-related processes. Logistic Execution concentrates on complex goods receipt and goods issue processes. It functions as a bridge between production planning and control, materials management, and sales and distribution. Also, it includes warehouse management, shipping, and transportation.
How does Logistic Execution increase efficiency in Supply Chain Systems?
Covid-19 made it clear that businesses need a robust system to handle the supply chain. Along with an absence of manpower, problems like insufficient stock, unorganized warehouse, etc., surfaced during the pandemic. These problems caused a severe loss. However, they stimulated organizations to find more reliable solutions to prepare for such disasters in the future.
Relying on traditional logistic execution technologies involves a risk. These days, the globalization of the supply chain is making them more complex. A shipment has to pass through multiple points of contact before reaching the end customer. At such times, the traditional logistic execution services struggle to monitor and control the processes as they lack proper technological resources.
The modern logistic Execution brings high-cut technologies that enable businesses to perform efficiently in the following ways:
- Helping in locating the operational vulnerabilities
- Identifying and managing the risks of all kinds
- Regulating the compliance issues
- Avoiding shipping disruptions
Moreover, logistics execution brings modern technologies that enable the operations to become flexible and utilize real-time data.
How does Logistic Execution upgrade the infrastructure of businesses?
Movement is the core of any business. Whether you move raw materials to produce things or transport products to the end market, movement defines the company. An unhindered movement of things leads a business towards its goals. However, any hindrance in this movement at any stage may disturb the entire process.
Covid was the hindrance of our times that almost destroyed all such movements. Fortunately, the worst had passed. Today, we haven’t just recovered from the hit of the global pandemic but also decoded it and designed a solution to deal with similar situations; that solution is logistic execution. It upgrades the business and makes them able to maintain the movements of goods throughout all stages. From transportation to warehouse management, and even sales, distribution, and procurement, logistic executions upgrade businesses’ infrastructure and enable them to function smoothly.
From packaging to warehousing and then to transportation, logistic execution assures the efficient transfer of goods and products by taking care of five pillars of logistics:
- Material Sourcing: Calculating and managing contributing factors and costs
- Transportation: Determining the best mode of transportation based on price, speed, and distance
- Order fulfillment: The way the company is responding to customer requests and until accurate shipping to the customer
- Warehouse management: From picking accurate products in the warehouse to proper packaging; proper organization of warehouse according to space availability and special requirements of products
- Demand forecasting: Proper management of the inventory for the undisturbed supply of high-demand products
