Understand costs and grow your business

Ever-higher levels of visibility across the logistics and wider supply chain sectors offer businesses considerable knowledge of the status of goods in transit and storage. But whilst the digitisation of the sector helps identify to a granular level where any individual item may be located anywhere in the world, the knowledge of what are a business’s key end-to-end cost drivers is less widely known.
In logistics and transport, operations are often highly complex and feature innumerable variables. But if the cost information on which decisions are based is either unreliable or – worse – non-existent, businesses can miss the opportunity to make decisions that have the potential to improve profitability in a sector where margins are sometimes wafer-thin. Furthermore, they may inadvertently make a decision that could prove costly to the business.
