We call ourselves a logistics company, but what is logistics really? What does logistics mean? The short answer is that logistics means the planning, execution, and control of flows. Logistics is often discussed when it comes to how goods are received and handled in a warehouse before being sent out to customers. That is also the sense in which we work with logistics, with the goal of minimizing costs for you and maximizing service for your customers.
Logistics and what is called supply chain management play a significant role in the development and profitability of companies. The flows of goods and information are becoming increasingly extensive and complex, and they also affect both costs and customer experience. There is always room for improvement in this area as well. To lubricate the machinery in the best possible way, it can be useful for those in e-commerce and wholesale, among other things, to seek help from third-party logistics. This means that another company, such as Exacta, manages all or part of your logistics. For the collaboration to work well, it is important to develop a smooth flow of information so that the logistics company quickly knows when a new order comes in and can keep you updated on what is happening.
Today, more and more companies are choosing third-party logistics. When you seek our help at Exacta, you free up both time and resources. We take the time to understand what you want to achieve through logistics, in order to tailor a solution. As logistics is all we do, we have had the opportunity to become really good at it and can offer a cost-effective alternative. We hope that this text has given you a better overview of what logistics is and means. If you have any questions or are interested in starting a collaboration, please do not hesitate to contact us.
