The ancient Greeks were spot-on when they advised, “Know thyself.” This saying is applicable to every aspect of life, including and perhaps especially money. Throughout your life you will make numerous money decisions that can strongly affect your well-being for better or worse.
In the logistics industry too, making a decision about choosing the right logistics partner is a big task. It is important as the partner needs to have the reachability to the destination, is known for being reliable with timely deliveries, gives more options for mode of delivery and payment, and especially, gives you the best price. Because if not, you will lose out on money, maybe even your customers.
So what can be done about this?
Well, the key to knowing money and where to spend it is being S.M.A.R.T. about it – and that starts even before you have it.
Specific: “I’ll partner with only one logistics service provider” is more specific than “I won’t partner with logistics service providers as much as I used to.”
Measurable: “I’ll check my dashboard to know the overall status of shipment deliveries, whether they are in-transit, delivered or being returned” is more measurable than “I’ll track the shipments myself and analyse the overall status.”
Achievable: “I’ll save up to 30% of costs this time” is achievable only if you get the best prices for the same efficiency of deliveries.
Realistic: “I’ll get in touch with my Single-Point-of-Contact to ask queries” is realistic if you actually have one logistics service provider. The more providers, the more will be Point-of-Contacts.
Time-Bound: “I want my logistics service provider to deliver within a week” is a more specific time frame than “The delivery should happen as soon as possible.”
