Many companies may lose sight of the entire order lifecycle as visibility to inbound shipments takes backstage to outbound shipping operations. Gaining visibility to inbound supplier shipments enables improvement in planning and scheduling and can positively improve profitability through lower freight expense. Companies that focus on inbound freight management enable the total cost-to-serve analytics that directly drives sales and operations.
It’s understandable why this happens, as inbound freight management is typically more complicated and doesn’t serve as the primary driver of a company’s revenue stream. That said, faulty inbound logistics can end up costing your business nearly 40 percent of the available freight budget, which can place unnecessary constraints on what you can accomplish.
If you want to implement a new approach that provides increased savings and better operations, Rockfarm Supply Chain Solutions will deliver on your expectations. We’ll complete a full analysis of the order lifecycle, and from there we can produce a customized solution that maximizes the potential of your inbound logistics.
