Logistics Support and Carrier Management

Logistics is about more than just a shipping choice; it is managing all the decisions around it, from storage and warehouse management to building relationships with the carriers and the team responsible for it. It is necessary to track not only costs but what carrier ships what and the costs related to each, as well as knowing what days and times things are leaving and who is responsible for them.

Planning the Details

Logistics, in its most basic, is the planning and maintenance of operations. Knowing the carriers available, tracking costs with each and who transports which types of loads and the locations they are available. The small details are as important as the large details, and knowing who to call when your next shipment is ready saves time and money.
Keeping a list of all the carriers you use and the contacts there is vital to timely shipping and building relationships. You must know where they go, what they ship, what methods they use, and what paperwork each requires.

When shipping cross border, it is necessary to ensure that products and paperwork meet the standards set by both sides of the border. Incorrect paperwork can delay shipments for days or even weeks, adding to costs every day it is late.

Relationship Building

Building solid working relationships with the staff not only in your own warehouse and shipping but also with your contacts at the carrier companies. Having a working relationship saves time and can bring financial benefits beyond making the process easier and faster

Timing

Knowing the timing of deliveries, shipments, and how long things are going to be in the warehouse is vital for keeping the business moving and on time. Having large amounts of product stored in the warehouse can increase costs, so the sooner items are completed and moved through the carrier to their end destination, the better the profit margin remains.

Tracking

Perhaps the most important part of managing logistics and carriers is tracking all the information. It is necessary to know which company travels to where, when, and how, who to contact, and then to follow what shipped, when it shipped, and where it went.

Many companies have switched to automated systems to track the goods, which is both time and money-saving. It leaves less room for mistakes and ensures that all the people who need to follow the shipments can see where it is and when it will arrive at its destination.

Building the right systems to do as much of your tracking is a time-saving way to keep everything straight and is well worth the investment of both time and money. When hiring someone to manage the logistics and carriers for your business, focus on a company that has been in the area for a few years. They will have knowledge of the markets and the transportation companies as well as what costs should be. Having experience with the transport companies is an advantage in your own shipping needs, and these relationships can be invaluable when planning for your business needs.
