Why outsource your logistics and warehousing requirements?
As a multi award winning, Australian owned and operated leading international freight logistics and warehousing company, IFC Logistics and Warehousing has delivered first-class supply chain solutions for over 30 years.
Businesses questioning if outsourcing logistics and warehousing is the next best step in their operations plan should carefully consider the benefits.
The most significant reason businesses opt to outsource their logistics and warehousing requirements is improve their logistics performance. By partnering with an experienced provider who measures their performance on key targets and KPI’s businesses arm themselves with a competitive edge that enables them to scale and support their growth.
Examples of such improvements relate to time and cost savings, greater access to modern technologies and best practice methods.
1. Save time
By outsourcing logistics and warehousing processes, businesses can save time and focus on the critical aspects of their day-to-day operations. In the long run, this will help develop the business, improving factors such as customer service, product quality and general serviceability.
2. Reduce costs
Keeping logistics and warehousing operations in-house can cost the business more financially in unused storage space and inexperienced staff. Outsourcing benefits from accessing a team of experts who are well versed in best practice storage and distribution processes and the availability of cost-effective warehousing space.
3. Greater opportunities
Logistics and warehousing companies such as IFC are constantly developing new and improved methods and developing industry connections, both of which can significantly improve the prospect of expanding and broadening clients’ logistics and warehousing horizons. This is exemplified by the development of IFC’s Direct to Store Model for Total Tools.
4. Access to modern technology
Working alongside a 3PL provider provides businesses with the opportunity to access modern technology such as IFC’s Cloud Supply Chain (CSC) software, offering complete visibility across the supply chain management process. What’s more, businesses can benefit from value-added features such as inventory management and last-mile transport information.
5. Superior risk management
Importantly, logistics and warehousing providers can take full accountability for the entire supply chain process from start to finish, minimising risks for businesses that may otherwise lack the experience to mitigate potential threats. Providers like IFC who offer a full solution approach to supply chain management can provide businesses with a great deal of peace of mind with their expertise and insights.
