Last Mile Delivery: Strategies for Improving Efficiency and Customer Satisfaction

Transportation Management Solutions: Key Trends and Challenges for 2023

Last-mile delivery refers to the final stage of the delivery process where the package is transported from the last warehouse or distribution centre to the customer’s doorstep. This stage is crucial for customer satisfaction and can significantly impact the overall delivery experience.

Consumers want what they want — and quickly. To keep their business, companies must find new, creative ways to improve their last-mile delivery strategy and meet customer expectations. Retail giants like Amazon and Walmart have seemingly limitless resources, yet companies must compete with them in order to survive. Many factors can complicate last-mile delivery and getting it right is crucial.

Companies are under constant pressure to meet the expectations of a “need-it-now” society. This urgency, along with the massive growth in e-commerce and online ordering, has placed an even greater emphasis on last-mile delivery: the final and most critical leg for when an order arrives at a customer’s door. The last mile serves as the physical touchpoint with your customers, greatly influencing customer satisfaction and setting customer expectations for future orders. The last mile has become a driver for new efficiencies, and organisations are constantly looking to balance customer satisfaction and delivery optimization, bringing the final leg of delivery into the spotlight.

Here are some strategies for improving efficiency and customer satisfaction in last-mile delivery:

i) Automated route-optimization:

The software is equipped with an advanced route-optimization and planning feature that automatically balances out all the boundary conditions, available resources, and constraints to come up with the most optimal routes. Given the complexity of modern logistics, this is really impossible to achieve manually. Some key variables include:

*Traffic conditions (congestion, bottlenecks, speeds, etc.)
*Weather and road conditions
*Distances to be travelled
*Available fleet vehicles and their capacity
*Available fleet drivers and their skills
*Delivery time-windows
*Available employee work hours, scheduled breaks

Logistics managers set their delivery goals, and the software balances out such resources and constraints to arrive at the most efficient routes and provide accurate customer ETAs. This is a forever dynamic process, and logistics teams also refer to historical data and use manual intervention as and when required.

ii) Complete transparency and visibility across last-mile operations:

The experiential part of a shopping experience is always highly valued by the customer. It provides the ‘emotional’ part of a brand’s appeal, and over time, its equity. Just like touching, feeling, and smelling a product while purchasing products in-store, benefits like real-time tracking, live updates, and communication with delivery-drivers is a crucial part of the order-fulfilment process.

It provides customers with transparency and visibility into the delivery process, thereby making them feel that they are in control of their deliveries. This provides them with confidence, makes them feel involved, and creates a sense of feeling valued.

Today’s dispatch software allows customers to monitor their order progress right from the point of dispatch to the point of delivery. Additionally, any changes (e.g., delays due to weather) are communicated in real-time.

iii) Offering enough options to customers:

Consumer surveys have consistently revealed that 50% of them rate choosing delivery windows for their parcels as topmost among their priorities.

Back in the day, customers really had just two delivery choices: Standard and Urgent! Modern conveniences like rescheduled deliveries or same-day deliveries were unheard of! But, led by the E-commerce revolution, such options have now become the norm. Today’s customers demand the conveniences of delivery windows, various methods of payment, re-scheduling deliveries, changing destination addresses – well, the list goes on.

Today’s delivery software enables logistics managers to take into consideration all the variables mentioned above (and then some) to arrive at the most feasible solutions for both the customer and the logistics companies.

Importantly, the software sets realistic targets so that delivery drivers can maintain all protocols (driving safety, shift hours, adequate rest, etc.) and achieve delivery dates that meet customer expectations. Also, since customer-preferred delivery times are factored in, the chances of failed deliveries are greatly reduced. This improves the cost, and efficiency, of the entire delivery operation.

iv) Free shipping:

Well, we all love a free deal, don’t we? For consumers, even with delivery charges falling as much as they have in recent years (consider Amazon Prime’s annual charge that entitles you to free shipping), the offer of “free shipping” is always a winning one!

Consumer surveys have consistently shown that 75% of consumers consider it an all-important factor when they are shopping online. Therefore, as a retailer, you must set yourself up to provide this option to your customers—it greatly increases your chance of attracting new customers and, thereon, the likelihood of creating lifelong customers.

~ For the modern customer, 2-3 day delivery is now the baseline, while 30% of customers now expect Same-day delivery ~

v) Personalise your customer communication:

You only have to listen to customer feedback surveys to realise how important it is to make your customer feel like they are “kept in the loop” during the order fulfilment process. Nearly half of all consumers state that they want real-time updates, and are likely to switch brands if brands don’t make an effort to reach out with ‘personalised communications’.
Imagine this: “Hello Adam! Your parcel will reach you tomorrow between 2 pm and 2:30 pm. See you then!”

Such personalised messages across the last-mile delivery create a huge impact on your customers and go a long way in improving customer experience and, therefore, building customer loyalty.

vi) Reduced delivery times and alternative fulfilment models:

With fast shipping becoming an ever-more important buying consideration for customers, it has necessitated the need for firms to maintain inventory stocks as close to customers as possible. Using modern delivery models such as self-pickups from designated locations and offline stores as micro-warehouses, companies can reduce order fulfilment times. Let’s look at some other popular options:
*Micro-fulfillment centres
*Pop-up distribution centres
*Curbside deliveries
*Hyperlocal deliveries
*Dark stores

vii) Using data analytics to understand consumer behaviour:

It would be obvious to say that modern logistics and distribution management are centred on the use of automation, data, and advanced algorithms. Right from optimising routes and delivery schedules to automated dispatch of drivers and parcels, the dispatch software of today is a powerful tool due to its algorithms.

Using modern last-mile software will indicate what your strengths and weaknesses are and identify your customers’ constantly evolving last-mile consumer expectations. With such actionable insight, you could minimise your inefficiencies, serve customers better, and deliver better on customer needs.

Transportation Management Solutions: Key Trends and Challenges for 2023

Transportation Management Solutions: Key Trends and Challenges for 2023

Transportation management solutions (TMS) have become increasingly important in recent years as businesses seek to optimise their supply chains and improve their logistics operations. As we look toward 2023, there are several key trends and challenges that are likely to shape the TMS landscape.

As the transportation environment becomes increasingly complex, transportation management systems are being called upon more than ever to meet shippers’ needs. Industry analysts contend that TMS “just keeps getting better,” with much of that momentum being driven by end users that are continually asking vendors to fold more capabilities and functionalities into their software portfolios.

Transportation management in 2023 will be a battle to get cost and service under control while advancing organisational capabilities to be more resilient, address labour challenges, and make a positive impact on the environment.

Managing transportation is getting more complex as everything from fuel surcharges to a driver shortage to capacity constraints have made selecting the best and most economical mode, carrier, and lane choices extremely challenging.

The good news is that technology vendors have stayed in step with—and sometimes, even out ahead of—broader transportation trends, and now offer transportation management systems (TMS) that help shippers better operate this critical supply chain component.

Whether they’re built into a larger enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, served up individually by a best-of-breed software vendor, or offered as standalone, Cloud-based platforms, TMS helps companies plan, execute and optimise outbound and inbound shipments. The software helps shippers forecast their transportation needs, manage multiple carriers, track shipments and automate processes like tendering and load booking.And due to the complexities that were created by the pandemic, shippers now truly understand the value of using TMS to automate their transportation activities.

TMS just getting better

Brock Johns, a senior principal analyst at Gartner, Inc., says that TMS adoption has remained strong over the last few years.
“We’re in the middle of the research cycle for the 2023 Magic Quadrant, and based on our preliminary research and data, vendor growth has been strong in the TMS market,” says Johns. “Interest in TMS solutions continues to be very strong as well. We continue to forecast double-digit growth across the market, and especially for small- to mid-sized shippers where the barriers to entry for TMS adoption have receded over the last few years.”

As he surveys the TMS market, Johns sees a supply chain management software category that “just keeps getting better,” with much of that momentum being driven by end users that are continually asking vendors to fold more capabilities and functionalities into their software portfolios. What also helps is most TMS applications are now available in the Cloud and accessible to a wider swath of shippers.

Transportation Trends For 2023

Some of the transportation trends are discussed below:

1. The Network Effect

The first of the transportation trends is the network effect is at the heart of supply chain transformation. Essentially, the network effect exists when all components of the supply chain technology ecosystem work together to improve the performance of the end-to-end supply chain.

From a transportation standpoint, the network effect relies on communication between trading partners on a public cloud application to make freight moves more efficient. The more entities on the network, the more powerful the network synergies are. A network application can mean more efficiently matching loads with capacity, using visibility tools to predict more accurate ETAs, optimising routes, and ensuring that trucks can be loaded and unloaded as efficiently as possible. Sustainability is a byproduct of the network effect. The identification of good backhaul opportunities, load consolidation, and route optimization means fewer trucks on the road.

2. Transportation Management System Innovation

The second transportation trend is innovation in transportation management systems (TMS). Historically, transportation management systems have offered a strong ROI. The primary reason companies buy a TMS is for freight savings. These freight savings can be attributed to simulation and network design, load consolidation and lower cost mode selections, and multi-stop route optimization. As freight costs have continued to rise, companies have looked more and more to their TMS to mitigate these rising costs. A big reason for TMS growth is the fact that technology has been steadily improving over the last few years.

3. Time Slot Management

The third transportation trend is the growing importance and interest in Time Slot Management. Time slot management helps to organise warehouse resources to prepare for an incoming truck. The warehouse needs to know who is coming and when which begins with the ETA. Beyond that, warehouse workers need updates on what dock the truck is arriving at, when the truck is loaded, what papers they will pick up, what needs to be signed, and when they are leaving the warehouse or yard.

There are elements that are out of your control that will impact shipments. It is really just a matter of how much of an impact will be felt. Time slot management applications can help to reduce the impact of changes. Whether it is due to traffic jams, missed appointments, or a variety of other reasons, loadings, and unloadings will need to be rescheduled on any given day.

4. Autonomous Trucks

The fourth transportation trend is autonomous trucks. The jury is still out on autonomous trucks – there have been plenty of pilots and publicity, but are self-driving trucks ready to take to the roads in a critical mass? One of the biggest drivers for self-driving trucks is the driver shortage which continues to grow every year. However, autonomous trucks are not the quick solution to the driver shortage. Similar to autonomous robots within the warehouse, autonomous trucks are not here to replace human drivers. Instead, they are here to collaborate with drivers to make the task easier.

The practice of platooning seems to be a space where the reality of autonomous trucks could first make an impact. In these solutions, the lead truck is equipped with technology augmentation while a follower truck operates in tandem through a fully autonomous system.

5. Autonomous Last Mile Deliveries

The fifth and final transportation trend in the future of last-mile delivery. One of the most difficult and expensive aspects of the supply chain is the last mile and home delivery. However, from a customer experience standpoint, it is also the most memorable and possibly important. As e-commerce continues to grow, we are looking at autonomous last-mile deliveries as part of the solution.

2023 Forecast: Rising challenges

The year 2023 will probably be a “catch your breath” kind of year for shippers – a return to a “normal” year, or whatever passes for normal now.

Shippers will be focused on resiliency and strategically planning for the next transportation challenges that affect the supply chain. Now is the time to reassess transportation strategies and partnerships and do extensive scenario planning. Below are a few more predictions for the year ahead.

1. Rate Stabilisation

Truckload, LTL, intermodal, and ocean should all expect to see stabilization, and possibly further reductions, in rates. The parcel will likely continue to increase but at a much slower pace.

2. E-Commerce & Omnichannel Pressures

Demand for e-commerce will continue driving pressure for distributed deliveries and more B2C shipments. Shippers will rely more on automated route optimization to enhance transportation efficiencies and ensure each movement in the supply chain is in the right mode for the right price.

3. Demand Forecasting Challenges

Forecasting demand for products and transportation will present a challenge. Inventory build-ups due to supply chain sluggishness, a return to consumer spending in services, and economic inflation have everyone asking – what will happen to demand?

4. Labour Shortages

Strikes and slowdowns will add to labour challenges and reinforce the need for flexible, resilient supply chains. Companies will continue implementing automation solutions for repetitive, manual tasks to combat ongoing labour shortages.

Stay Informed And Adaptable In 2023

The year ahead will present transportation challenges and opportunities for the supply chain. Shippers will turn to automation, enhanced visibility, and dynamic solutions for routing and pricing to help them stay adaptable and meet the changing demands of the global economy.

Overall, the TMS landscape is likely to become more complex and challenging in 2023, as businesses seek to optimise their logistics operations and meet growing customer demands. However, by staying abreast of key trends and challenges, businesses can position themselves for success in this dynamic and rapidly-evolving field.

The Value-Added Service Your Warehouse Needs

The Value Added Service Your Warehouse Needs 02

What is a Warehouse Management System?

A Warehouse Management System (WMS) is an essential link to the supply chain process that utilises technology to increase efficiency and productivity and provide information about warehouse operations in real time.

Value-added services in logistics allow businesses to provide more comprehensive benefits, which has become an essential tool in increasing customer satisfaction. Using these services is especially vital in operations based on customer trust. Supply chain and logistics are some of the most competitive sectors and adding value can give your organisation an edge.

What is a Value-Added Service (VAS)?

The term value-added services refer to the additional distribution and warehousing services offered by third-party logistics providers to businesses looking to outsource their supply chain operations.

Whenever logistics providers add value the right way, it affects the level of customer satisfaction, while indirectly increasing their bottom line. Service providers know the ins and outs of the business and they can assist companies in responding to customers’ needs. Companies partnering with value-added logistics providers can focus on their core business and work on being more competent in the market. Value-adding is not a one-time task — it requires continuous maintenance and 3PLs are working toward providing value-added services in conjunction with their more traditional offerings.

Adding value to your packaging and transportation process can give your company an edge in the market and enable you to stand out from the competition. Service providers offer a range of contributions that add value to your brand, but how do they do that? And is it advantageous? Let’s look at some offerings and how they can benefit your organisation.

What Are Warehouse Value-Added Services (VAS)?

Warehouse value-added services are additional services that a warehouse or third-party logistics (3PL) provider can offer to their clients beyond the standard storage and shipping services. These services can be customised to the client’s needs and can include anything from repacking and reworking products to material screening and postponement services.

Containment services:

Containment services involve keeping products in a specific area or “containment” until they are ready to be shipped. This can help to improve quality control and prevent damage to products.


Reworking involves taking products that are not up to standard and making them compliant with the client’s specifications. This can include anything from removing damaged goods to fixing packaging errors.

Labelling and relabelling:

Labelling and relabelling services involve applying labels to products or changing the labels on products. This can be done for a variety of reasons, including updating the label to reflect a change in the product or applying a special label for promotional purposes. However, going the extra mile to ensure that products are properly labelled and packaged can set you apart from your competitors. Offering custom labelling or packaging options can help your customers stand out in the market and improve their brand recognition.

Screening and inspection:

Screening and inspection services involve checking products for defects or damage. This can help to ensure that only quality products are shipped to the client. Ensuring that products are of the highest quality is critical for any business. This service can be especially valuable for customers in highly regulated industries like food and pharmaceuticals.


Repacking services involve packing products into different types of packaging, such as changing from bulk packaging to retail-ready packaging. This can be done to meet the client’s needs or to protect the products during shipping.

Benefits of Value-Added Services in Warehouses

There are many benefits to using warehouse value-added services, including:

Improved quality:

Value-added services can help to increase the efficiency of the warehouse operation. This can lead to reduced costs and improved profitability.

Storage needs taken care of:

When businesses use value-added services, they can be assured that their storage needs will be taken care of. This can free up time and resources that can be used for other purposes.

More time to focus on business expansion:

When businesses use value-added services, they can free up time to focus on expansion. This can lead to increased sales and growth.

How Technology is Revolutionizing the Warehouse Management Industry

How Techonolgy is Revolutionsing the Warehouse MAnagement Industry

Technology is quickly transforming the world around us, impacting everything from the way we communicate to how we operate our businesses. Technology is transforming warehouses, too, supporting learner, more agile operations and enabling warehouses to offer rapid delivery and error-free orders – elements that are essential to the success of a fulfilment operation.

Why is technology important for warehouses?

Some companies open their own warehouses or distribution centres, but opening a new facility requires substantial capital. To avoid significant capital investment, some companies enlist a third-party logistics provider (3PL) to provide warehousing, distribution, and logistics services, while others turn to on-demand warehousing to secure additional storage capacity when they need it. In addition to securing additional storage capacity, many warehouses turn to technology innovations to meet the demand for rapid, accurate deliveries.

But what technologies are behind the curtain? And how are they changing the warehouse landscape? In this blog, we’ll examine different ways technology is transforming warehouses:

1. IoT, sensors, and scanners improve the accuracy:

Technology such as IoT, sensors, and barcode scanners enable warehouses to digitise processes that were previously manual, time-consuming, and error-prone.

Inventory management is a good example. Before technology advancements made it possible to streamline or automate inventory counts, warehouse associates manually counted each item and documented SKUs and the number of items in stock. This process is tedious, time-consuming, and subject to human error.

While many warehouses still utilise manual inventory counts periodically as an auditing process, automatic data collection makes the inventory management process more efficient. For example, RFID tags transmit data automatically, providing better visibility into inventory levels in real time. Barcode labels and scanners are other options, allowing associates to document inventory data with a simple barcode scan, rather than relying on error-prone manual data entry.

Many mobile devices now have barcode scanning capabilities, which eliminates the need for dedicated barcode scanners. Coupled with cloud computing, warehouse associates can easily access software systems real-time location tracking. G for real-time access to data. GPS solutions help reduce theft and inventory loss through PS also enables real-time shipment tracking for end-to-end supply chain visibility.

2. Cloud-based Technologies

Many warehouses were slow to adopt cloud technologies due to perceived security concerns and the lack of others in the industry using the technology. But now many software companies are developing applications specifically for warehouse receiving and inventory that can be accessed via the cloud. They can be accessed on smartphones, tablets, and computers, making this a highly versatile solution.


Radio frequency identification technology (RFID), also known as Automatic Identification (AutoID) is a new automated data collection system that shows a lot of promise in warehouses. Although it consists of several different components, this new technology could be most beneficial in receiving. It allows for items to be automatically scanned in larger volumes– and at higher speeds– than any other method available. This can also help reduce costs, streamline processes, and increase accuracy in all areas of the warehouse. It has just recently emerged as a possible solution for warehouses but does show great promise and could be the way of the future.

4. Mobile Workstations

One of the most innovative and practical solutions in modern warehouse receiving is the mobile workstation. These portable computers allow employees to take the system with them all over the warehouse and take every step of the process in one trip. This helps to significantly boost dock-to-stock time as well as reduce labour costs. The ability to take the workstation anywhere the employee is working also greatly reduces the chances of mislabeled products, inaccurate inventories, and other possible mistakes.

5. Time Efficient

In the past, it was not uncommon for materials received in a warehouse to be handled by multiple workers, but constantly handing off items only increases the amount of time it takes to reach its final destination. Advanced receiving technology allows for a single worker to scan and check in a shipment, and it can then be immediately moved to its designated spot.

6. Sustainability

Sustainability is an important consideration for many companies, and this trend is turning into a driving force for innovation. Warehouse technology and sustainable building design are no different. Replacing traditional warehouse fluorescent lighting with LED alternatives can save up to 85% of energy usage while creating fewer emissions, reducing the need to replace bulbs as frequently. Taking advantage of data-driven warehouse solutions can also improve efficiency by preventing power ghosts from drawing energy when they’re not in use. Smart warehouses rely on monitors to regulate power usage on a massive scale, saving big corporations and small startups alike money.

Manufacturing, raw material transportation, and storage are not the only steps in the process of getting products from points A to B. Warehouses can contribute to sustainable practices by decreasing waste with improved monitoring and retrofitting.

7. Augmented Reality (AR)

AR technology is being used in warehouse operations to provide workers with real-time information on inventory locations, order-picking instructions, and safety alerts. This technology can reduce errors and increase productivity by providing workers with the information they need to complete tasks more efficiently.


While not all of these technologies are currently used in all warehouses, there are clear signs that they are the way of the future. With the changing market, warehouse managers will take any necessary steps to keep up. Cloud technologies, automation, mobile devices, and other new technologies would allow them to do just that by increasing productivity as well as reducing costs at the same time. The first step in any of this starts in the receiving department. Technologies that allow for great accuracy, better placement, and quicker dock-to-stock time will help to streamline every area of the warehouse and create a more productive environment.

The Future of Logistics Software: Predictions for 2023 and Beyond


The Future of Logistics Software Predictions for 2023 and Beyond

The weak link in supply chains over the years has been transportation. In response, companies are working to offer great value to customers’ demands, while keeping their transport logistics budget sustainable.

We’ve seen tremendous growth in logistics advances ever since the 2020 pandemic, and these developments are reported to continue as top logistics trends for 2023 predict that sustainability and digitization play a significant role in the continued growth and improvement of supply chain management.

When we think of the supply chain, the first thing that comes to our mind is- “Logistics Technology 2023”. The only reason is that logistics technology has automated everything. It helped businesses and saved time in gathering data, processing, analysis, and transmission while maintaining high-level accuracy. Here logistics software is of great help in streamlining the flow of things in logistics operations.

An outlook into the future of the logistics industry (whether ocean, air, or ground) focuses on the advanced technologies making their way into our society’s mainstream. These advances revolve around many logistics sectors, including warehousing, mobility, supply chain stability, and security.

What will be the future of logistics software?

It’s difficult to predict the future of global logistics, as it depends on various factors, such as technological advancements and changing customer needs. However, you can look forward to the following trends in transportation and logistics in 2023 and beyond:

1. Artificial and Augmented Intelligence:

AI has been at the core of technology in various industry verticals and logistics is one of them. Logistics has begun integrating AI to refine the flow of operations by including transportation, route planning, and demand planning.
Moreover, Augmented Intelligence could be seen making its way into logistics. It will combine the efforts of human planners that include experience, customer service, flexibility, and more. The best example could be seen in warehouse management to optimise the distribution of diverse goods and their storage. It is the advent of third-generation business intelligence where we can expect smart industry systems to have stunning cognitive abilities that will display instructions of the work plan with detailed operational instructions. This transformation will help in reducing the lead time and training period.

According to research, In 2023 Augmented Intelligence is expected to create a business value of $2.9 trillion that will increase worker’s productivity by 6.2 billion hours globally. Thus, we can expect more and more companies to deploy AI solutions aimed to reduce errors and save cost and time.

2. Warehouse Robotics:

When it comes to warehouse operations, logistics have witnessed a significant transformation recently. If you closely look at the practice of adopting robotics in the logistics area, you will find more tangible and clear benefits.

Owing to the benefits, we can expect warehouse robotics to be in trend in 2021 and beyond. Robots can reduce human errors that can bring in significant profits as the cost incurred is significantly decreased.

Moreover, it will ensure the safety of workers by undertaking dangerous jobs such as checking high racks for storage spaces. Also, it helps increase the delivery speed and overall efficiency through automation that will eventually satisfy the customers and grow your brand.

So, above were the biggest trends that we can expect in the future. All these are likely to impact the logistics and manufacturing industry, where logistics software will have a crucial role to play.

If you are looking forward to a solution, try logistics software from LogixGrid Technologies top logistics application development company. We have worked with numerous companies across the globe and helped them to grow their business.

3. Data standardization and Advanced Analytics:

When it comes to data standardisation, it has never been at the core of the logistics industry. Companies have stored it wherever they wanted to, but that leads to a scattered ecosystem resulting in inefficient operations that lacked digitization.

So, the companies who want to survive the massive changes that are to come will have to keep up with the data standardisation and incorporation of advanced analytics.We can see that companies are moving towards creating common information technology standards to completely digitise and facilitate interoperability.

Moreover, young startups are focusing on advanced analytics platforms to resolve data inconsistency issues that are helping to cleanse the data. Some of the best deployments could be seen in the areas of proactive linehaul planning, demand forecasting, predictive maintenance, last-mile delivery improvements, and more.

4. Last Mile Delivery Automation:

Last-mile logistics is part of the supply chain that has been the target for many businesses after the omnichannel distribution in E-commerce. We can call it delivery uberization which is based on the direct contact between consumers through mobile technologies.

Last-mile delivery logistics are subject to automation at a greater level that includes trans-shipment and fulfilment centres, logistic hubs, shipping automation, advanced analytics, and the usage of ML. It is undertaken to simulate and predict customer behavior patterns, forecast material flow, and logistics routes.

5. The Rise of E-Freight:

Technology is transforming air logistics with the introduction of end-to-end paperless air cargo transportation. Like most industries, air freight forwarding is looking to reduce paper use in the future.

There will be an introduction of software for digital invoicing, freight tracking, and more. The goal is to create a paperless future in air logistics. This system will help reduce carbon emissions and waste generated by air cargo companies.

6. Introduction to Regionalization:

Globalization made it possible for consumers to have everything they want at any given time and in any quantity. But the rising number of consumers makes it challenging to avail goods on demand. These consumers are also choosy regarding their purchasing choices, meaning they won’t accept alternative items.Regionalization means reorganizing the manufacturing of products into smaller blocks in more localised economies. The goal of this strategy is to move production closer to the customers. It allows for shorter transport routes to foster trust and authenticity. Logistics companies can now directly contact the people behind a product and fulfill customers’ orders.

Expect more logistics companies to embrace regionalization over globalisation. In the long run, processes become more efficient and cost-effective. Regionalization helps address the velocity and agility issues of supply chains. It’s a great way of keeping up with consumers’ growing expectations.

2023 call:

2023 will be a “learn” year for machine learning in supply chain and logistics operations. As ML arrangements go more standard in 2023, supply chain and logistics technology industries will study its capacities — where it works and doesn’t (we’ve proactively seen a portion of these cases). We will likewise see more complex purposes of ML that join it with “traditional” algorithms to determine optimization improvement areas and system configurations in planning technology.


Smart technology and smarter decision-making based on supply chain data are among the most significant logistics industry trends for 2023. It all adds to greater sustainability, which will continue to be the central theme to orchestrating competitive edges for the storage and distribution of products. Sustainable solutions like LogixPlatform help organise a warehouse to avoid shipping errors. Learn more from the most innovative technologies about other ways to achieve supply chain sustainability.

Overall, the future of logistics software looks bright, with emerging technologies and a growing focus on efficiency and sustainability driving innovation in the industry.

Embracing Sustainability in Logistics Best Practices and Innovations

Embracing Sustainability in Logistics Best Practices and Innovations

In recent years a rising number of multinational corporations have pledged to work only with suppliers that adhere to social and environmental standards. Typically, these MNCs expect their first-tier suppliers to comply with those standards, and they ask that those suppliers in turn ask for compliance from their suppliers—who ideally ask the same from their suppliers. And so on. The aim is to create a cascade of sustainable practices that flows smoothly throughout the supply chain, or, as we prefer to call it, the supply network.

There has been a significant improvement in companies’ initiatives around sustainable practices and the government’s push toward the concept in the past few years. Business decision-makers have realised the importance of sustainability in their operations to reduce the enterprises’ carbon footprints. Recently, around 20 per cent of India Inc. included a sustainability report as part of their annual reporting processes, which is a step in the right direction. Companies have consciously included renewable energy in operations and logistics, and the central government is also committed to shifting logistics and supply chains to 100 per cent green and renewable energy resources. There are different reasons why the public and private sectors have emphasised embracing sustainable logistics in the business environment.

At a time when small as well as large companies are finding ways to reduce their overall emissions by shifting to alternative fuels, it is critical to acknowledge that transportation is one of the significant contributors to the total pollution in the country. As per a report, it contributes to more than 11 per cent of total air pollution in the nation. Another study has evaluated that the contribution could be much more than this number.

Hence, irrespective of the nature and size of a business, it is critical to notice that contribution to pollution levels and carbon emissions can be controlled only with sustainable practices. A proactive approach from large enterprises having their supply chain management system shall be a welcome step in addressing this issue.

Embracing sustainability in logistics is essential to reduce the environmental impact of transportation and distribution activities. Here are some best practices and innovations to help logistics companies become more sustainable:
Use alternative fuels and electric vehicles: Alternative fuels and electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular as people look for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and decrease their dependence on fossil fuels. Switching to alternative fuels like biodiesel, natural gas, and hydrogen can reduce emissions. Electric vehicles are also becoming increasingly popular due to their low emissions.

Increasing Use of Data and Analytics to Improve Logistics Efficiency and Cost-Effectiveness

Increasing use of data and analytics to improve logistics efficiency and cost effectiveness

Logistics has never been more complex than it is today. The worldwide idea of the inventory network has made continually moving elements that can essentially influence an organisation’s benefit. This was made clear by the mind-blowing strain put on strategies because of the Coronavirus pandemic. In response, data analytics is helping manufacturers, shippers, and retailers gain visibility into their operations and optimise them so they can better deal with the unexpected. Thus, information-driven organisations are expanding overall revenues and consumer loyalty levels.

Let’s look at specific ways that data and analytics is improving logistics efficiency and cost-effectiveness :

1. More Accurate Supply and Demand Forecasting :

Utilising the abundance of exclusive and outsider information accessible, organisations can follow and adjust to shifts popular close to continuous. Enormous information investigation permits organisations to produce more exact market interest figures to illuminate stock and shipment arranging.

2. Inventory Management :

If a product is out of stock, there’s a high probability that customers will move their buying conduct. An IHL study uncovered that 37% of clients who experience an unavailable thing will buy from an alternate brand, while 21% will purchase from an alternate retailer.

3. Warehouse Management:

In addition to reducing stockouts and overstocks by optimising inventory management, data analytics can also improve the efficiency of warehouse management. Companies can track the movement and location of stock and combine this information with sales data to identify the best location for each SKU in the warehouse and find opportunities to streamline.

To improve their operations, companies should identify risks associated with their suppliers. With this information, companies can either work with their suppliers to solve the problems creating the risks or select new suppliers if the risks can’t be mitigated (i.e. incidents of natural disasters or political instability that affect the supplier’s ability to fulfil commitments).

4. Supplier Risk Management :

To improve supplier risk management, companies can track any indicator that reflects a risk, such as:Late shipments

  • Delivery to the wrong location

  • Delivery of the wrong product or quantity of product

  • Inefficient processes used by suppliers

  • Regulatory compliance issues

5. Prevent Loss with Better Fraud Detection :

Fraud can be costly for a business in any industry. Data and analytics can help organisations discover trends that point towards suspicious activity to reduce fraud and thwart criminal efforts. For example, big data can help retailers build profiles and set thresholds for normal customer behaviour regarding the purchase of a specific product over some time. With this baseline established, retailers can then identify customers whose behaviours indicate that they may be committing return fraud. Retailers can then blacklist these customers or take other actions to help prevent return fraud.

6. Performance management :

Solving inefficiencies and ensuring operational standards are respected by tracking any metric along the supply chain. Performance managers transform data insights into actionable results, such as the optimization of resource consumption or delivery routes. For instance, shippers expect drivers to arrive on time, maintain docking schedules, and avoid wasted time. Data can help us to understand and monitor the performance of the workforce.

7.Productivity improvement :

Real-time data sharing with all partners is essential. The insights that a company gathers are useful both for a logistics company and for its partners. This type of data sharing in logistics can help improve operational efficiency by capturing fluctuating customer demand, external factors, and the operations of the partners. It will enhance transparency and help all stakeholders to streamline their processes, ultimately improving the quality of operational processes, and the overall performance of the logistics business.

Challenges to implementation of Big Data Analytics:

According to a survey, 37% of managers have just “engaged in conversations” to implement analytics. 27% of those who have implemented big data analytics have it operationalized and embedded into critical supply chain processes. However, 57% of respondents use big data as logistics management solutions on an ad-hoc basis. Some of the main barriers for individual companies are:


business logistics experts may have large volumes of data but lack the expertise to see and analyse it as the graphic interface is not user-friendly.


the amount of high quantities of data is still something that needs development in small economies and regions like Latin America, the volume of patterns are available in an urban area or a metropolitan region, but are scarcer in forecast traffic in rural areas. With third party companies, it’s easier to create synergies and economies of scale with big data information. Otherwise, the individual in-house use of big data is not cost-effective.


people may have access to data but don’t know how to give them direction in terms of their desired outcomes, strategic and day-to-day orientations. In other words, managers have massive amounts of information available, but don’t know what to do with it.
Data and analytics are transforming many industries and businesses, and logistics is not an exception. The complex and dynamic nature of this sector, as well as the intricate structure of the supply chain, make logistics a perfect use case for data. Valuable insights obtained through data leveraging enable the industry players to optimise routing, to streamline factory functions, and to give transparency to the entire supply chain, for the benefit of both logistics and shipping companies alike.98% of third-party logistics companies believe that data analytics is critical to making intelligent decisions. 71% of them believe that big data improves quality and performance.

Conclusion :

Big data analytics in the supply chain can dramatically improve operations and maximise ROI. It becomes a lot easier to predict and work on customer requirements and hence enhances customer satisfaction and loyalty.
The increasing use of data and analytics can improve logistics efficiency and cost-effectiveness by providing insights into supply chain operations, identifying inefficiencies, optimising routes and inventory management, and improving customer service through better demand forecasting and real-time tracking.
