The Problems and Challenges in Logistics and Distribution
The biggest challenge faced by the logistics and distribution industry in Australia is how to efficiently route deliveries across a massive geography. Moving goods from one location to another in the most cost efficient and rapid way is paramount. Of course, you also need to balance environmental factors. The industry can no longer afford the cost of split shipments, the wrong product being delivered, a truck leaving a depot only partially laden or incorrect paperwork.
How Automation can help
Some of the processes that can be automated for your operation include:
- Shipment scheduling and tracking
- Invoice processing
- The management of returns
- Inventory processing
- Order tracking
When a process is automated, it is executed perfectly every time and can run all day and night without interruption. That means that your staff can focus on more important work, such as customer service and managing process exceptions, rather than repetitive tasks that sap their energy.
