Are Top Companies Outsourcing Logistics?
Many companies are struggling right now. It is no secret. It’s plastered all over the news. So when your company is facing difficult times, you look to cut costs wherever you can. Does this mean that you should not outsource logistics? It actually means the opposite. Outsourcing logistics services to a Logistics Services Provider can save you a significant amount of money and allow you to focus your energy elsewhere (like bringing in more profits). Many top companies are outsourcing logistics, and you can be sure that they would not be doing so if it was not saving them time and money.
The Aberdeen Group recently conducted a survey of over a hundred supply chain professionals, and it turns out that about 90% of respondents are using Logistics Services Providers. Best-in-class companies are realizing that they can utilize the specialties of their own employees while outsourcing logistics to transportation professionals. These respondents reported benefits such as reduced freight costs, decreased warehousing costs, efficient deliveries, and ability to extend their reach globally.
Working with Logistics Services Providers does not limit your control and constrain your cash flow. In reality, outsourcing logistics can result in a highly personalized and visible process, especially when using our TMS that is available to you 24/7.
