In recent times the logistics industry has gone through a paradigm shift. The demand for fast and seamless delivery between different physical points have increased manifold and to meet these new demands the approach to the practices of logistics, distribution, and delivery has changed.
The supply chain of a modern logistics and distribution system starts from the producer and ends at the customer. It is often a long chain involving connections between transports by various surface, marine and air cargo systems as well as storage units at various points of a warehouse network.
The synchronization between online and off-line spaces
Modern day logistics often begins in the online space. The order for a delivery is placed at the company.s website via a phone or a desktop device. The actual process of logistics, involving distribution and delivery is then monitored through smart web and mobile interfaces.
The success of a state-of-the-art logistics system these days thus depends on creating the perfect synchronization between online systems (which is often a software that is used for tracking and monitoring the movement of goods from point to point) and off-line networks. Such a system leverages the potentials of existing physical networks for distribution and delivery of goods while utilizing the scope of the online space for creating a seamless monitoring and tracking system.
A specialized approach
For specialized and perishable goods in particular, the logistics industry needs to have a system in place with sophisticated cold chain solutions. Logistics service providers with in-depth knowledge about temperature sensitive solutions are in demand, especially for the medicine, food, and agricultural industries.
