This is how you make your logistics management truly “live”!
Let’s take a beat. What is ‘Live’? Remember delivery planning and scheduling when all you had were some charts and tables? How could you find any pattern there? Yes, you know how many deliveries are pending or completed, you know how many delivery associates and vehicles you have available, you know the orders coming in and their timelines. Some would say at this point it is pure math. It may be pure math, but its high-level quantum-complexities style math.
It sounds simple as putting driver A in vehicle B to deliver order C. But once these orders are out for delivery that’s when plans take a dynamic turn. Traffic is live, issues are live, incoming pickup requests are live, delays are live, and most important, customer satisfaction is live! It’s not A + B + C = customer satisfaction. The only way to match steps with the dynamic nature of on-time same day deliveries for a fast ballooning order volume and diminishing capacities, rising freight rates, deepening driver shortage, impending trade concerns, and fluctuating fuel prices, is to become far more dynamic, responsive, and agile in the planning and operations at the ground level.
Gone are days of static analysis and planning. Deliveries are made not within charts and tables. They are made live, so should their scheduling and routing. All live.
What you see is what you get. ‘Logistics optimization’ optimized!
Let’s say you are a logistics manager and you need to send out a thousand orders today and you have some vehicles sourced from the market.
- You want your customers to get their orders when it’s promised, not a minute later,
- You also want to keep your costs down as now your available capacity is a commodity for yourself. The more smartly you use it, the more you would get out of it.
- You are looking for a way to up your productivity with shorter turnaround times and high on-time delivery rates.
- You want to match all incoming demand to outgoing supply, so you are not stuck with over or under capacity.
- You also want to know that whatever your plans are, on-ground your delivery associates and drivers are following it properly and achieving the desired results.
It’s a lot to take in.
- And yes, you have less than an hour to do it or you would detain your resources too long and push deliveries into delays.
