Whether you are global or local, asset or non-asset based, move shipments by air, ocean, ground or any combination in-between, the challenge for transportation and logistics service providers is to offer differentiated service at a competitive price. This is easier said than done, as you have to manage shipments, resources and documents that are all concurrently in motion with business processes that extend to the edge of your enterprise and well into your trading partners’ and customers’ operations. Working with trading partners can also be a challenge because they are numerous and your relationships with them are constantly changing.
We understand that distribution companies are challenged with increasingly slim margins and getting the right products to right place at the right time. Balancing the need to maintain the high levels of customer service, required to attract and retain customers, against cost pressures across transportation and labor is no easy task. You need the tools in place to help overcome disparate systems and manual processes, while better managing the inventory, assets, personnel and related business documents you have in motion.
No matter what you manufacture, the flow of goods, inbound from suppliers to manufacturing facilities and outbound to distribution centers and end customers, is a critical component of your business. Descartes understands that logistics is an essential component to your success.
