Control

The nature of competition differs in all sectors. Direct competition between businesses leaves room for research on how to best manage information fluctuations all along the supply chain. The increasing refinement of supply chain software technologies offers the possibility of improving integration and productivity. The more integration, the higher the client satisfaction, the shorter the total duration of the cycle, and the less errors. In many cases it also allows us to realize savings whilst maintaining absolute control over commercial activities and logistics.

 

Efficiency

Market globalization and the advent of e-commerce have transformed the nature and structure of logistics functions. The best distribution system wins the game. Given the speed at which technology is changing, businesses must periodically renew their equipment and software in order to remain competitive. They absolutely must remain on the cutting edge of technology to be able to consolidate the various supply chain components and accelerate the flow of information.

 

Knowledge

Logistics sector contributors and suppliers of logistics services must have a vast knowledge of transportation, warehousing and international goods transportation regulations with which they must comply. Governments modify their regulation and compliance procedures and these changes influence logistics activities. Logisticians must therefore adapt rapidly to new environments. Transport services deregulation and technological progress have brought on an improvement in logistical systems and growth in productivity.

 

Globalization

Logisticians must know and understand international systems of trade and logistics as well as overseas regulation systems and ethical codes. They must also possess linguistic competencies and cultural awareness in order to successfully deal with worldwide partners within the supply chain. Similarly, they must be expert users of technology and be capable of formulating strategies that allow them to draw a competitive advantage from technology.
