Global issues & challenges in logistics management

Published in: Education, Business, Technology
  • Thanks for sharing the list of issues and challenges, the top 10 challenges part attracted my attention the most. Those might have been the top challenges in 2012, but today things have changed, and so have issues. Supervising warehouse operations is one of the major challenges today. With warehouse being a vital part of a supply chain, it stores goods worth millions for transport to desired destinations. Any improper maintenance, lack of supervision can cause inventory damage or loss or theft. Thus, you need an eye on every activity going on inside, and how your staff is performing. Inventory shrinkage is a major challenge, simply because if a shortage in the stock will lead to non-timely deliveries, creating a bad image for your business. Through warehouse surveillance, you can make sure that there is no inventory shrinkage due to theft or mishandling of merchandise by the staff. Also, surveillance helps keep a track of the arrival and dispatch times of the goods. This information can be used to understand and improve the efficiency of any and every warehouse operation. For more information on how a managed surveillance service can help you improve warehouse operations with upgraded security, visit - http://gizmosupport.com/e-surveillance-for-warehouse/
