Challenges and opportunities.

The logistics industry is under pressure to deliver increasingly rapid fulfillment, with customers expecting same and next day deliveries in many situations. But capacity utilisation is still causing lost revenue, with empty return and transfer routes averaging 29%.

Route congestion is also presenting challenges in terms of distance and number of drops covered, as well as on-time deliveries.

Technology is improving to ease these challenges, but with profit margins sitting at around 4%, the funds to invest are hard to find.

Logistics firms that can understand and address the changes in the sector will be better placed to keep their business model evolving to meet the increasing demands of customers and their customer’s customer.

Beyond-Consulting’s role.

All this translates into more revenue to invest in the technology and talent to move your logistics firm ahead of the competition.

Michael was always full of zeal and energy to get the job done, with a solid marketing plan, methodology and reasoning behind his motives.
