INDUSTRY SPOTLIGHT: So what is Transportation and Logistics Management?

The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) defines logistics as ‘the process of planning, implementing, and controlling procedures for the efficient and effective transportation and storage of goods including services, and related information from the point of origin to the point of consumption for the purpose of conforming to customer requirements’.

This definition includes inbound freight management, outbound, internal, and external movements.

Often, outsourcing logistics to an expert provider, who can not only offer software, such as a transportation management system, but also integrated services to deal with accounting, claims, transportation routes, documentation, custom clearance, transportation including sea, air and road transportation and building custom inbound freight programs will allow the internal logistics team to have more meaningful collaborations with others in the supply chain and company at large.

Rather than focusing on all of the details and complexity of both transportation and logistics management, it allows the logistics team to really focus on results and strategy for further logistics optimisation, as opposed to tactics. When you can focus on results, and have a trusted partner help you, often both hard and soft costs savings are realised at a much more efficient and quicker pace. But how could this help you and how do you choose a partner? Well we thought we would ask one of our valuable customers what they think.
