Which industries benefit from this? And in what way?
All branches can benefit from the use of smart IT by logistics service providers. Consider, for example, the supply of perishable products, such as fresh flowers, vegetables, fish and meat. The high demands placed on the transport of perishable goods keep logistics service providers on their toes. If transport does not go smoothly, this will impact the quality of perishable goods quickly. For example, the catering industry is highly dependent on accurate delivery. Good sales are, in fact, dependent on fast delivery during large peaks of activity.
Smart IT systems
Not only does the government put ever higher quality requirements on products, but businesses and consumers also expect value for money. In order to ensure a smooth delivery, logistics service providers must have well-controlled processes. An IT system that provides an instant overview of where and when to deliver can be crucial. Not to mention the ability to carry out process changes. Geo-management tools and route intelligence, such as a comprehensive graphical planning board with advanced map material, allow for rapid and timely intervention when changes or delays occur. Through smart IT solutions, incorrect transport can be minimized. It also enables the driver to digitally “call” required documents such as customs documents and delivery papers during delivery. Logistics service providers using smart software can achieve the highest degree of efficiency and with that maximize service quality. This works both ways. Delivering perishable goods quickly to the right place, for example, prevents business damage to the customer. Logistics service providers, on the other hand, build a long-term relationship with their customers and save on fuel costs and time.
