How to optimize your Logistics, by saving on time and costs?

Introduction

The world around us is transforming, me and you may like it or not. We have a choice to be spectators, become part of this transformation, or even lead the change. The rest of this blog is focused on an audience ready to transform with us, spectators please excuse!

Shippers

In the world of Logistics Shippers/Freight owners are the industries driving force. They can be employees or business owners. Can hold a multitude of responsibilities between servicing customers, running a business, keeping track of freight movements & optimizing costs.

Are you a Shipper reliant on Paper-based systems, emails, and phone calls to manage freight?

Do you spend a lot of time trying to find a suitable carrier for that one remote customer?

Are you looking to make sure your current carrier is charging a fair price?

Did an experience of paying the carrier upfront left a sour taste?

If you answered yes to any of the above, trust me by today’s technological standards you are still a spectator.

It's time for you to move away from the pack and become a leader. The competition will keep guessing while you fast pace your organization’s progress.

Make sure you read to the end as I share with you how to leverage technology to save time and costs.

Carriers

These are the companies, transport operators, and owner-operators who are entrusted to move Shippers freight. In today's world, big companies are leading the change in technology and marketing.

However, all the complexities of a business hierarchy have made their business models rigid and slow to change. They often fail to add value in ways an owner-operator can. Unlike big organizations, the owner-operator relies on repeat business to be sustainable.

Small operators are often invisible to the Shippers, they lack access to a visible platform where they can seek out shippers. In turn, they rely heavily on word of mouth. The tech-savvy (relatively small %) are catching up on Facebook load boards or online Logistics marketplaces.
