Manage Your Transportation Network Proactively
Transport logistics involves multiple parties, countries, and modes. Due to global turbulence in logistics, there is a growing need to monitor and manage the transportation process and the whole supply chain network transparency more accurately than earlier. This requires sharing operational information between parties in real time. Without shared information, you will miss out on many potential benefits of logistics operations. Thus, what you need is an overall solution, a structured way of working.
Fit for Purpose
Every transport logistics chain is different even within the same industry. Each chain is shaped by many different factors, such as the field of operation of the involved parties, location, and the features of transported products. Rarely will you encounter an entity that would be an exact replica of another. Therefore, the solution need to be fitted for the exact purpose by means of data, processes, ways of working, operators, and (information) systems.
It is still very common to do a lot of manual work to find out the status of transportation. This is a reactive and inefficient way of working. Instead, you should monitor the whole transportation network digitally and receive automatic alerts on deviations in your process. This will lead to improved planning of your operations in inbound logistics and better customer experience in outbound logistics.
Put Your Metrics in Order and Monitor Deviations
There are ways to digitalize your transportation network and integrate it into your operations. Once this is in place, it is important to measure the whole and verify the success rate.
Monitoring transportation performance is different from reporting performance. Traditional report-based monitoring, which involves looking in the rearview mirror, is reactive, addressing problems that have already occurred. It is crucial to detect deviations and issues at an early stage or even before they arise. This is why you need immediate access to alerting information when deviations from your metrics occur. This allows you to take corrective actions, communicate early to manage expectations, and enhance responsiveness in transportation logistics management, ultimately improving supply chain performance and increasing customer satisfaction.
Improve Customer Satisfaction
Roima’s ROIWalk concept is a cost-efficient, fast way to start developing your logistics operations from the basics up. This only requires one efficient day of collecting data, after which our experts will compile a report providing a description of the current state along with observations, and suggestions for both quick-win initiatives and long-term development. Based on the report, it is easy for the customer to take the needed next steps at their convenience.
