Understanding your consumers with logistics consulting

For many companies, logistical planning should be at the forefront of business strategy to ensure customer satisfaction which could then lead to repeat sales. Logistics within a company could be anything from transporting products across the county through to warehouse design of packaging stations and collection points, all of which need to work fluidly together to improve services to customers. Having an effective logistics plan could reduce time taken for products to each the end consumer and could also reduce overheads such as fuel and warehouse rental costs.

 Understanding the geographical location of your target consumers, can help to forward plan the travel networks and the distribution points required for your products to reach your customers in a timely manner. If the majority of your sales came from the capital of London, having a warehouse in Scotland would incur unnecessary additional costs in transport including labour charges for the driver, the large amounts of fuel needed to travel from one end of the country to the other and, potentially the rental costs of hiring a large lorry. However, this must be weighed up against how your raw materials reach you as, again, location could impact heavily on your delivery expenditures.

 It is often very difficult to accurately gauge where distribution points should be and what methods of transport should be used without the help of a logistics consulting team. These consultants often have many years of experience in logistical planning and understand the potential restraints that ill planned logistic strategies can bring. Taking advice from a logistics consulting team such as Gideon Hill Consulting, could improve your customer service levels whilst decreasing unnecessary expenditure which can only improve your business’ reputation and finances.
