The logistics industry is practically driving the whole wide world. With distances shrinking due to faster means of transport, the possibilities in the field of logistics are endless. While this may sound alluring, don’t be mistaken, it is indeed a fiercely competitive space.
Every logistics provider aims to deliver on the promised timelines and in the minimal costs. The catch here is that logistics is among the most complex industries globally. There are so many factors and participants in the whole process that it can get pretty overwhelming.
Limitations of a Traditional Logistics Model
Until lately, most logistics providers have focused on implementing IT solutions within their domain of operations. While this exercise has yielded positive outcomes, this model still has few serious limitations.
Foremost is the huge upfront cost of implementing such IT solutions in house. To avail their full benefits, you generally have to implement the solutions across your entire warehouse footprint. This can jack up your investment in IT to millions of dollars.
The other major limitation of such a restricted model is that while it enables you to streamline in house operations, what happens with the operations and logistics partners that you don’t control directly.
As a result, nearly all major logistics companies are on the lookout for holistic solutions that first of all, do not entail a large capital expenditure (CapEx) to set up. Another driving factor behind looking for alternatives is the ability to have visibility beyond your organization.
