5 Ways In-Night Logistics Can Boost Your Bottom Line
5 ways in-night logistics can boost your bottom line
When it comes to the day-to-day movement of vital parts and goods, in-night logistics are an essential component of modern supply chains. By ensuring effective and efficient services, such as; delivering the right products faster, on time, to the right place and, at the right price, they can help put your company ahead of the competition.
Here are 5 ways that in-night logistics can help boost your bottom line.
1 – Increased Operational Efficiency
When engineers or technicians are forced to ‘down tools’ waiting for critical parts, production is affected at a huge cost to the business. Designed to meet the needs of time-critical industries, in-night solutions operate during the late hours of the day and early morning, enabling vital deliveries by 07:00 a.m. By improving the delivery speed of critical parts, technicians gain up to 10 hours more service time each week, increasing operational efficiency by up to 35%.
2 – Utilisation of Resources 24/7
An around-the-clock logistics strategy is fundamental to the success of today’s supply chain, by ensuring the continuous supply of critical parts, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is especially useful for technicians, engineers & dealers, who require parts or products for critical jobs, fast. With a 24/7 logistics approach, businesses can respond quickly to market demands, meet customer expectations, reduce downtime, and retain a competitive advantage.
3 – Improved Flexibility & Speed
With earlier delivery of critical parts, technicians can start work sooner, respond faster to unexpected disruptions, and speed up the repair process. With pre-07:00 delivery, to specific locations, (such as a vehicle, box, or locker, pick-up & drop-off (PUDO), or Forward Stock Location), dealers and engineers get their parts quickly, efficiently, and safely. Faster parts delivery gives technicians more time to serve their customers’ needs and vastly reduces unnecessary stem mileage.
4 – Better Customer Service
In-night logistics enables deliveries during off-peak hours when there is less traffic and congestion, resulting in faster, more reliable and more sustainable deliveries. Faster delivery times equate to speedier repairs, increasing customer loyalty and satisfaction.
5 – Growth in market share
In today’s always-on world, having the ability to quickly respond to customer needs is essential to gaining a competitive edge. By leveraging an effective logistics strategy now, you can help ensure your company remains competitive for the future. As expressed by Tafara Svosve at Massachusetts Institute of Technology;
“Increasingly fierce global competition is one of the main challenges facing organisations today in their quest to gain and sustain competitive advantage. However, providing a level of service that stands above the rest can rarely be achieved if a supplier fails to focus on its logistics strategy.”
