As a crucial service sector, logistics operations must have the ability to continue uninterrupted despite any disruptions or even unprecedented situations. Apart from the physical journey itself, there is an extensive trail of paperwork that needs to be verified, processed and delivered on time to execute a successful logistics run.
A luxury and streetwear e-commerce retailer that serves 114 countries and operates in multiple languages was looking for fast and effective solutions to optimize their current delivery logistics in order to ensure on-time shipment and delivery.
Logistics operations further necessitate an extensive paper trail that matches goods to the right supplier and address along with the applicable freight charges. This results in piles of paperwork including freight bills, load confirmation statements and bills of lading, all of which need to be processed with the utmost care and accuracy.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a series of rippling effects, impacting not just the healthcare system but also disrupting the global economy and growth trajectory. One such major disruption can be seen in the disturbance of the supply chains. Therefore, the need of the hour is to build supply chain resilience.
The current situation isn’t just worrying for logistics operators; disruption of supply chains can result in a severe shortage of essential medical supplies and everyday necessities like food and sanitation supplies with disastrous consequences.
Now, more than ever, it is important to build resilient supply chains to ensure that necessities reach wherever required. In fact, almost 94% of companies have suffered supply disruptions due to the COVID-19 crisis. This is a problem that needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
