No organization succeeds with an inefficient logistic partner. The way you choose and manage your logistics service providers will affect your business strategies that have been carefully crafted.
Common mistakes made by beginners are seeing logistics as a commodity, ignoring issues such as service level, delivery time, and user satisfaction. Making decisions based solely on cost usually leads to comparisons of apples against bananas, or the famous “cheap gets expensive”.
How, then, to choose a logistics partner?
An ideal partnership is one that invests in the success of its own business, as much as you invest in yours. In addition to the ideal price and efficient service, it should have the following qualities:
The supply chain is becoming increasingly digital, interdependent, and complex. Those who continue to expect operational efficiency with old manual methods are doomed to frustration. Therefore, when choosing a partner to compose your logistics environment, it is essential to select someone who understands the importance of integrating different points of contact in the chain, who can consistently evolve, and who is robust in the digital environment.
Global is the new local. A logistics partner is a key cog in the wheel to ensure that your products reach customers at the lowest possible cost, with fewer process steps, on time, and in good condition.
The scale of operations is another crucial aspect to consider when partnering with a logistics service provider. Understand their development plan. Will it be able to cater to your business growth? Can it manage sudden market-driven demand or do they have a reliable partner network to provide the necessary support?
· Customer service
This is another attribute that needs to be assessed to ensure success in managing and executing logistics plans. Can your prospective partner’s customer service team anticipate problems and work to find the best solutions for your company? Are they focused on understanding the pains and needs of your customers?
