Amazon’s prime day upped the utilization of their fulfillment centers by over 25%. They have made their logistics leg into a powerhouse which they keep leveraging to get ahead of the competition. O one hand they are losing money and on the other, they are continuously building value, much more than any other company. What’s the key here?
Today we speak to an industry veteran with close to two decades of raw delivery management experience. Liam O’Sullivan has earned matchless following and adulation in his career. He is the Director of Operations at International Post Corporation (IPC), Brussels, Belgium.
We have seen the Walmart acquiring Jet, Bonobos, Modcloth, and Shoebuy while planning to set up around 1000 pickup locations for online grocery shoppers. Racing Walmart to the front is Amazon with its grand acquisition of Wholefoods to enable faster deliveries with multiple pickup options.
Technology has enabled us to record, plan, allocate, dispatch, track, validate, and analyze all freight movement from a single dashboard with clear and real-time actionable insights in an easy-to-understand format. This leads to an agile, reactive, and dynamic setup for a company’s transportation management system.
Optimization is doing more with less while sustaining (or bettering) the efficiency of operations. With multiple orders and shipments constantly moving with an excess of customer requests and demand, fulfilling on-time deliveries consistently not only saves costs but also increases the overall brand value for the company.
Tech evolution must always be around a purpose. The purpose of the upgrades mentioned here, and many more that are regularly communicated to the clients through mailers, is singular. To optimize resource movement with a view to reduce operations costs and improve overall process efficiency.
Do you also take a lot of time before finalizing a logistics management solutions provider? Do you wish to check the credibility of their performance, before taking the final call? Finally, do you wish timely and safe product distribution with real time visibility at the least possible cost?
