Transportation and logistics service providers (LSPs) live in an incredibly dynamic world of evolving markets, shifting customer demands, and rising competition. To survive and thrive, you need to be flexible, informed, and cost-efficient.
This industry is all about people and processes – and it’s your ability to execute across these areas that drives your profitability. To stay ahead you need to empower your people and enhance your processes with information – so that all parts of your operation can work together to deliver more profitable services.
For carriers, transportation asset management (locomotives, trucks, aircraft, and rail track) is an area ripe for improvement. Through better management of spare parts and more effective maintenance scheduling you can realize dramatic cost savings. Fuel impacts transportation costs and can force changes in your operation. This means you need process flexibility and business insight to make informed decisions that contain costs. And for contract logistics, the ability to tailor and support the warehouse needs of your target industries requires flexibility and sophisticated process support to deliver advanced services such as batch management, serialization, and catch weight.
All of this is why SAP gives you the end-to-end process support and 360-degree visibility you need to drive down costs and improve decision making in today’s demanding business world.
