Why you should outsource logistics

Posted on

Getting your product to it

With your company growing, the ability to move with it is paramount. Logistics is a key component in any supply chain, and one that should not be taken lightly. Your products need to be at the right place at the right time, any delays or mishaps can cause drastic effects to the functioning of any company. It only takes one look at KFC’s chicken crisis to understand that.

So what should I expect by outsourcing my logistics?

Firstly, using third party logistic allows you to focus on what you do best. It’s in the right mind of any businessman to be as efficient as possible and by doing unnecessary work, productivity is certainly decreased. Its as simple as letting the baker bake your bread for the morning instead of every night, going home and baking some before bed. Yes, you could do it, but would it not be better to let someone else do it for you? If you’re no wiz in the kitchen, then you know what I’m talking about.

So, if i hire someone else wont it cost me more?

Yes and no. As previously discussed, getting your product to market is extremely important, and eliminating as many inefficiencies as possible, should be a primary component of any strategy for a business to implement. Yes it costs to hire out, but its no different to expanding the workforce within the core components of your operation, due to a higher product demand. For example, you need to hire more people within the production line due to an increase in orders. Well the extra wage wont outweigh your new increased orders. This is similar with using third party logistics, the extra help costs, but it allows you to grow the business at the same time.

Outsourcing logistics can really be looked at, as a well qualified employee for the job you need.

The ability of expertise and knowledge is invaluable to businesses, along with the piece of mind of mind that your products will be safe in transport. Get in touch if we can help
