Roadmap for sustainable shipping execution

Roadmap for sustainable shipping execution

Logistics operations are always sales-driven. This implies that logistics concepts and operations should follow sales concepts. With the advent of e-commerce, the sales trends such as combining B2C, B2B, D2B, D2C, cross-border, marketplaces and offline/online retail create complex multi-store, multi-warehouse and multi-carrier operations. In this roadmap, Supply Chain Movement and DeliveryMatch describe typical obstacles and solutions along the route to real-time chain control, from checkout to doorstep.

The first stop sign on the road to sustainable shipping execution is ‘Commercial Misalignment’, where the sales concept is not integrated with logistics. To get the traffic light to turn green, and continue the road, you can:

• Involve logistics in designing a new sales channel
• Design a new sales channel with all logistics service providers and carriers
• Involve all system vendors in the sales channel design phase
• Make the concept suitable for B2BC and D2BC business in the future
