How to easily move from traditional to digital logistics

Going digital is a journey, not a light switch. Cloud-based logistics management solutions smooth the path towards digital leadership.

 

Traditional logistics is not only undergoing a large-scale digital transformation – the very concept is being left in the dust.

In a fiercely competitive and disruptive marketplace, both logistics service providers and logistics service clients realise that they need to adopt digital practices in order to stay in business further on down the road.

There is no two ways about it: Digital logistics is the future of freight.

And it provides a wealth of opportunities in a time of escalating consumer and environmental demands.

But how do you move from traditional logistics to digital logistics in a smooth way?

 

The step-by-step approach

In traditional logistics, processes are for the most part manual and paper-based (using phone, reading paper documents about goods and movement of goods, and so on).

In digital logistics, all information exchange is electronic, and all stakeholders are continuously informed about progress and status.

Going from traditional to digital may seem like a big leap. And it is. But the best way to make this leap is to do it in small steps. Once you have taken all the steps, the leap has been made – and you are doing digital logistics!

Which leap do you need to take?

This depends on how you currently operate. Regardless of the leap, however, today’s cloud-based logistics management solutions offer low-cost capabilities for...

  • Preparing shipments and consignment
  • Labelling of goods in compliance with relevant standards
  • Informing customers about what they will receive, and when
  • Booking and monitoring transport

Which capabilities you are adopting first depends on where your key pains are. The first step would be to identify your most critical business pain point and select a system that helps you eliminate that one first.

Then you address the next issue, until you are fully digital.

The only thing you really need to care about is that the SaaS solution you choose is able to support you “all the way”.

How about cost, is this a concern? No need to worry.
