Performance Management In The Transportation And Logistics Industry
Managing transportation and logistics has been a critical focus area for manufacturers, distributors and third-party logistics players in their pursuit of developing a lean, agile and efficient customer-oriented supply chain. Among the biggest challenges these players face today is maintaining the delicate balance of increased material and transportation costs against the expectations of improved service levels mandated by customers. To achieve this end, many industry players are collaborating with their key customers and vendors to improve their processes and systems and provide better service quality, reduce costs and improve visibility. To gain full advantage of such collaborative initiatives, building an efficient and effective supply chain intelligence infrastructure is a must.
