Often companies who outsource their logistics retender at the end of the consultancy contract. However this approach doesn’t always utilise the full benefits of the tender process or challenge current tender service providers.
Outsourced operations that are retendered often do bring about savings to a company, but evaluation and improvement of your current logistics provision can also bring savings and remove the cost and time spent finding another logistics provider.
Experienced logistics consultancies can offer a deeper level of understanding of the requirements needed to meet logistics objectives. This means long-term contracts with these expert consultants can reap greater benefits, as they will be able to address a company’s logistics needs over the years.
Long-term logistics outsourcing provides an overview of supply chain and operations that short-term contracts cannot offer. So if you need to outsource your logistics the best bet is to find a provider you are happy with and stick with them if you want quality logistics management.
