"Outsourcing" means the outsourcing of certain work processes to external service providers. In business, "logistics" describes all the activities of a company in connection with the transport, procurement, dispatch and storage of goods. When logistics is outsourced, a company specializing in this takes over the usual transport and warehousing tasks. This includes administrative processes and control functions such as customs clearance, picking, order acceptance, shipping processing and returns management.
Logistics is a complex process and closely linked to business success. Logistics is used in B2B, B2C, e-commerce and wholesale. Not every successful company is a logistics specialist at the same time. The development of a company's own structures devours valuable time and resources. A competent partner who maintains an overview and ensures reliable handling of all processes is worth its weight in gold. This applies to companies of all sizes, from start-ups to medium-sized companies and producers to global players. As a rule, an own fleet of vehicles is too inflexible for companies.
- Save costs: Logistics outsourcing saves costs, time and space.
- Use expert knowledge: Logistics specialists have industry-specific know-how and experience. This applies to warehousing, transport management and customs clearance.
- Companies benefit from this knowledge: With the help of professional logistics service providers, you can fulfil customer wishes and offer top service.
- Increase customer satisfaction: The professional handling of shipping and logistics ensures a high degree of satisfaction with the company's services.
- Increase turnover: In the long term, customer satisfaction has a positive effect on the company's turnover.
- Concentrate on your core business: In addition, logistics professionals can free up company employees to concentrate on their core business.
At the latest when the logistics costs of a company rise, logistics outsourcing is a sensible alternative. With an external service provider, companies tie up less capital: they save storage space and costs for renting buildings and personnel.
Smaller shops, start-ups and medium-sized companies in particular can keep up with the market leaders in the industry thanks to logistics outsourcing. They offer their customers the best possible professional service. Thanks to logistics outsourcing, new acquisitions in the IT sector (computers, security software) are not necessary to handle logistics.
Companies from neighbouring German countries also benefit from logistics outsourcing: they improve their dispatch speed and service.
