What are the benefits of digitalising your logistics process?
Digital logistics processes ensure that there is end-to-end visibility in inventory, orders, and shipments across the supply chain. It allows logistics or events managers to see where their stock or shipment is with just a click of a button! Read on to explore some of the key benefits of digitalising your logistics process.
Having your stock levels and locations at your fingertips helps to manage inventory levels. You can track what has left your warehouse, what is remaining and even set alerts when stock is low. Automating the process drives efficiency and decreases the potential for human error when managing stock levels.
In addition to this, having 24/7 access to your stock and shipment location gives you peace of mind. Knowing you can check it’s location, estimated arrival time and recipient information allows you to rest assured that you can answer any customer enquiry that may arise at any time.
One of the key factors of digitalising your business is that it will save you money on operating expenses. In fact, digital logistics has been credited with an average cost savings of 35%, as well as a 50% reduction in carbon footprint. We could probably stop this blog there because for most companies, that would be reason enough to go digital!
For those looking to increase productivity, digitalisation and automation will play a key part in this. Imagine all the time that is manually spent tracking, recording and analysing stock levels, deliveries and updating your customers. Now imagine what your team could get done if they didn’t have to do all of those things.
Lastly, digitalisation enables you to give members of your team and your customers access to see where their deliveries are. For example, if you are an events manager with a team working on site, you can give them access to see what time to expect the shipment to arrive.
