Tips for Boosting Logistics Performance


Effective inventory management is crucial for logistics performance. Conduct an ABC analysis by line item, focus on reorder points, and ensure accurate master data. For transport fleets with over six vehicles, routing and scheduling software can optimize delivery times and vehicle capacity, resulting in significant savings. Having a documented supply chain strategy with clear objectives, KPIs, and targets is essential to align your team and improve performance.

Designing your warehouse with storage needs and handling requirements in mind ensures the facility meets your needs. When outsourcing logistics, take 4-6 months to find a suitable 3PL partner to avoid poor partnerships. Simplify the freight process with carriers instead of just negotiating rates to reduce costs.

Clear and simple KPIs at each organizational level, benchmarked against industry standards, drive better performance. Regularly review your distribution network to ensure it remains efficient and aligned with changes in your business. Strengthen your S&OP by engaging all core functions and focusing on accurate sales forecasts to better align supply and demand. Lastly, understanding costs at a granular level helps uncover hidden profitability issues, transforming logistics performance.
