How would you answer this conundrum? An order has been placed for 200 boxes of your stock, logistically how would you get the full stock to its destination on time? Although this seems a simple task, there are many things which need to be considered. Do you have 200 boxes of the product readily available in a warehouse? What transportation vehicles should be used to best transport this order and what route should be taken? All of these fall into logistical planning within a business.

Not only does this planning include the transportation of products, but also includes warehousing options. Often these are not easy questions to answer which is why logistical planning is so important to business. With the help of logistics consultants, this planning process can be made all that much easier.

Why use logistics consultants?

Logistics consultants will have many year of experience when it comes to this planning process, including warehouse planning which encompasses a variety of target areas. Stock inventory and rotation and staff resources must all be considered under logistical warehouse planning. Without the staff to handle, store, package, load and deliver stock; there would not be a smooth running process in place. This could lead to poor customer services – through miss-placed, confused or even late orders - and so could potentially harm future business. However, too many members of staff could result in excess overheads which would not aid effective business management.

This project planning process also considers the types of transport needed to offer an efficient service – whether this being a plane, ship or lorry vehicle.

The intended result of logistical planning is to improve the overall business process and with this improve the services offered to the customers – improving customer satisfaction. For those with little knowledge of logistical planning, logistics consultants can offer the experienced support needed to improve your business services.
