Fulfillment Logistics Service
Logistics, understood as integral, is a procedure within a company in which various departments, both internal and external, work in a synchronised manner to act under the same objective: to deliver the products to the end customer in the shortest possible time.
By having a single logistics service provider acting in synchronisation with your company, the service time required per product is reduced and more goods can be shipped more efficiently.
Due to increasing competition in almost all industries, logistics has had to evolve in order to reduce costs and internal resources, maximise the production period and optimise operations.
Thanks to this, it is nowadays possible to perform complicated tasks, such as working with a large number of goods from different origins and stored in different locations, and to be able to deliver them in record time.
Definition of logistics
But before we go on to talk about the importance of good logistics, it is best to explain what it is:
The logistics of a company or business encompasses all those activities carried out to enable the delivery of a product to your end customer from the moment you get the raw materials.
In general terms, logistics encompasses four major operational groups:
- The transport of goods
- Cargo handling
- Final distribution of products
Logistics is considered to be an operation parallel to the manufacturing of products, and therefore an easily outsourced task.
The logistics manager is responsible for organising the movement of all materials, semi-finished products and end products from the acquisition of raw materials until they are delivered to the end consumer.
Advantages of outsourcing logistics
Delegating logistics in an integral way also has a series of advantages that enhance the value of your business. In this case we can appreciate:
With the outsourcing of logistics services, you will pay based on the resources that you use for the development of your activity, without the fixed costs of maintaining both human and real estate resources. Nor will you have to make large initial investments or have immobilised resources.
When a supply chain works efficiently, with a formidable performance, the results show a higher productivity, generating a great profitability for the company.
Centralisation of information
Through the use of new IT applications in the sector, you will have real-time knowledge of the status of the stock volume of your products in the different facilities, as well as the location of your products if they are being moved or served.
Improved service response
Every day the competition uses more refined methods to outperform other competitors and stay in the market. Entrust the integral logistics of your business to a company that already works optimally, improving response times and also improving the perception of the service by the end customer.
Updating internal processes
A company that has grown using strict and obsolete processes does not allow it to adapt to the times. Updating certain processes could take years and involve a significant capital outlay.
By outsourcing logistics, you automatically have the capacity, processes and flexibility to play an excellent role in this aspect of your business.
Stay ahead of your competitors
By improving the competitiveness of your logistics activities you will achieve greater sectoral expansion, and thus get ahead of your competition without much effort.
Through optimised integrated logistics, your internal activities and administrative tasks will be executed in a shorter period of time.
Acquisition of know-how
By outsourcing to a logistics company, you instantly gain in-depth knowledge of the supply chain and the best strategies for improving procedural efficiency.
This improvement becomes indispensable to set a long-term evolutionary strategy for your company.
The importance of logistics
The importance of an optimised supply chain for your business lies in what it allows you to do:
- To be able to extend the scope of your activity to new markets in a scalable and solid way.
- Ensure product availability in the face of new service requirements and temporary peaks in demand.
- Reduce the environmental impact of your operations and thus reduce the carbon footprint of your products.
- Minimise logistics costs, both in the short and long term.
- Prevent and resolve mishaps and unforeseen procedural issues.
- Exploit the integration and knowledge capabilities of new technologies.
- Unify the necessary logistics supply chain resources into a single figure.
This is why outsourcing integrated logistics services for your company is a great advantage that will allow you to expand and grow.
As mentioned in the definition above, logistics is the set of procedures and stages through which goods pass until they are received by the customer as a final product, excluding the production phase, called the “logistics chain”.
The five basic functions of logistics are:
Transport and supply of goods
The main logistics activity is transport, whether by land, sea or air.
Although it is the most visible, we must not lose sight of the fact that it is part of a larger whole, as without the other upstream and downstream functions, it would not be possible to guarantee a complete operation.
Successful transport and distribution of goods is made up of key route planning, responding to demanding last mile deliveries and ensuring customer satisfaction.
Operational activities within the warehouse are all actions performed internally in the warehouse.
From the receipt of goods to the preparation of orders, including the correct placement of goods within the space following the most optimal method based on the typology of the products.
Inventory regulation and control is one of the most important functions in the logistics process. This task mainly encompasses the identification and control of the units available in the warehouse in order to know in real time the availability to offer these products to the final consumer at the time of sale.
On the other hand, stock control also facilitates access to the products on the shelves, which translates into greater efficiency of the logistics process as a whole.
The traceability of a product before it is delivered to the end consumer consists of knowing at all times where it is physically located throughout the logistics chain.
By controlling the route taken by a package, the history of its origin and its destination, it is possible to optimise both delivery times and distribution costs, as well as to detect the position of defective batches at an early stage.
This final process takes place after the goods have been delivered to the end consumer.
Reverse logistics is therefore the monitoring of customer satisfaction, the registration of product warranties and the handling of returns if necessary.
Objectives of the optimal logistics chain
The main objective of the logistics chain at the business level is to plan, manage and control the storage of goods in a way that meets the needs of customers in a specific market.
That is, to deliver the products or goods to the right place, at the right time and under the right circumstances in order to satisfy the target market.
We can also highlight other secondary objectives such as:
- Meeting the demand for the service in optimal conditions of time, quality and cost.
- Management of the means and resources necessary to meet the demand satisfactorily.
- Guaranteeing the demands of the end consumer in order to be at the same level as other companies in the sector.
- Adapting to issues of global interest, such as respect for sustainability and the correct management of environmental risks.
- Finally, to support logistical obligations in the global business strategy.
