Logistics Performance Tips


1. Master Your Inventory Management

Effective inventory management is the backbone of logistics performance. Many companies still grapple with stock outs and excess inventory. Start with an ABC analysis by line item, not just by product group. Focus on reorder points, minimum order quantities, and pack sizes. Accurate master data is crucial—it’s the key to managing your inventory and logistics performance efficiently.

2. Optimize Your Transport Fleet

If you’re running a fleet with more than six vehicles, routing and scheduling software is a must. This tool helps you optimize delivery times, vehicle capacity, and time utilization, leading to significant savings, especially for larger fleets. Investing in this software can streamline your operations and boost logistics performance.

3. Develop a Robust Supply Chain Strategy

Surprisingly, around 40% of companies lack a documented supply chain strategy. Even a simple one-page document outlining clear objectives, enablers, KPIs, and targets can align your team and improve logistics performance. A clear strategy ensures everyone is working towards the same goals.

4. Design Your Warehouse from the Inside Out

Warehouse design is often overlooked but critical. Many companies select their facility without fully understanding their storage needs. Instead, design your warehouse starting with the inside—consider storage requirements, handling needs, and ideal footprint. This approach ensures you choose a facility that fits your needs, enhancing logistics performance.

5. Take Your Time with Logistics Outsourcing

Searching for a new 3PL partner? Give yourself ample time—ideally 4-6 months. Rushing the process can lead to poor partnerships. Collaborative tendering can yield better results. A well-chosen partner is a cornerstone for improving logistics performance.
