Business Information By Mast Directory: A guide to logistics business

Logistics reduces the overhead costs by implementing smart and efficient technological model which gives value to time and storage area. In other terms it can be defined as the logical way of transportation of goods between the points of origin to delivery (consumer point). Manufactured goods should be managed effectively so that the organization need not worry about wrong delivery, wrong package, misplaced location, time for sorting, etc. Imagine a manufactured good stacked somewhere in between thousands of other goods in transportation and shipping, rather than sorting out the good it would be viable to manufacture it again which piles up useless inventory and increases cost of maintenance.

There are reputed companies such as US federal post, Federal express, Blue star, DHL, etc which provide logistic solutions to thousands of customers worldwide. Companies such as Federal express, DHL, Blue star, etc are based in many countries and receive thousands of mail orders every hour which should be sorted out, mailed to different countries and customers in time. This process requires precession and accuracy because any delayed and wrong shipment increases over all business cost thus squeezing out margins. Transportation and shipping companies like Mc Donald, Burger King, etc require ingredients to be shipped out to them from ware houses across country at precise time with all quality guidelines maintained. These warehouses store the merchandise from different parts of the world into racks which are to be shipped out to their precise locations in precise time. Also different merchandise requires different storage area and temperature conditions which make the process much more difficult.

To perform all those above mentioned functions logistics business needs efficient transportation network, business model and healthy margins, huge storage area, reliable and accurate software which performs, fork lifters, cranes, containers, etc. Margins for logistic businesses depend upon the price of commodities such as oil and steel. Any uneven rise in commodities (oil, gas, steel, iron, etc) will affect their margins which can be passed onto customers.

Customers often have long term contract with logistics and shipping providers because they can negotiate for lower costs for longer term contracts, have reliable single supplier, get approvals, etc. Logistics businesses offer prefer long term contracts because it helps them to plan and prepare according to client needs. Logistics business suffers from higher software cost according to the complexity of their business model and client requirements. Machinery cost also rises according to the complexity of the business model. Fork lifters, cranes, trucks, multiple wheel trucks (specially designed), etc depict a part of the machinery required to handle storage places.

There are two ways to perform logistics and shipping business first one would be to supply machinery and related moving equipment for efficient transfer or travel of goods from one destination to other. This part of business requires tracking system software, security for goods, insurance, efficient back up system, health of vehicles and machinery, maintenance, etc. Cost of management can be reduced if the contract of transportation is provided to third party and monitoring of activities is undertaken by the contract holder.

Another way of logistics business is to provide complete solutions right from the start to end so that every functioning of the contract is undertaken by you. This way of business increases your risk and also makes you vulnerable to any price and margin changes. It gives you a healthy margin and makes your business much more profitable and visible. There are certain shipping companies which provide solutions right from unloading the cargo either from a ship or transport aero plane to customer`s door step thus creating value to business. Insurance is a must for logistics and travel business as it reduces their business risk. Creating software and software related services for logistic business is a profitable venture as margins are reasonable and growth is huge. Much more sophisticated tracking and monitoring systems are being developed for logistics business. Ships, trucks, airplanes cargo dispatch, vehicles, etc are getting state of the art tracking devices which is preventing fraud.
