Although there are various reasons why logistics should matter to your business. We are going to focus on three areas why Logistics should matter to your business: Creating a competitive edge, providing organization for your staff, and improving customer relations.
Competitive Edge: Having an efficient and effective logistics process can separate your business from your competitors. By providing shipments of your merchandise from the place of origin, to your customers in the quickest most cost effective manner possible. Your business not only increases the chances of return business, but also reduces costs (which in itself is enough to give your business an edge over its competitors).
Providing Organization for your Staff and clients: Each time a product is shipped, not having an effective/efficient logistics process can mean lost time (which can quickly turn into lost revenue). It is important inventory be tracked, transported, stored and manufactured in a way that accommodates all of your organization’s departments. Lost time (in most cases) usually equals lost money (either in the form of labor or loss of return business).
Customer Relations: Customers want there products and they want their products fast (at the lowest cost possible). Having a solid logistics process not only insures your clients receive their products in the fastest manner possible, but also at the lowest cost possible. In turn, this improves your customer relations, while also increasing the chances of return business.
