Supply chain logistics
Looking for a logistics partner that helps you think about your supply chain? Then Daily Logistics Group (DLG) will be glad to help you. We specialise in supply chain logistics: nationally, internationally and certainly also in the UK. We not only transport your goods from A to B, but work with you to think about other issues related to the supply process. Curious about the possibilities in terms of supply chain logistics? We’ll be glad to tell you!
What is supply chain logistics?
Supply chain logistics isn’t just logistics, but the kind of logistics that also deals with the supply chain. But what is a supply chain? This is a term that refers to all processes, activities and players between the supplier and the end user. Supply chain logistics is where logistics and the supply chain meet.
From the 1990s onwards, supply chain logistics – also known as supply chain management – grew enormously. The increasing competition, new IT developments and focus on customer-oriented business caused a revolution in logistics, as organisations paid ever more attention to optimising their supply chains. And so, the term supply chain management was born.
Internal and external supply chain logistics
To make the whole supply chain run smoothly from the starting product to the end user, all internal and external processes need to be well connected with each other. Here, DLG distinguishes between internal and external supply chain logistics:
- As the name suggests, the internal supply chain relates to activities that take place within an organisation. These include activities at an early stage like purchasing and production, though operations such as the storage and transhipment and sale of goods also fall within this category.
- The external supply chain, on the other hand, relates to operations outside the organisation. These include all activities performed by suppliers, customers and other stakeholders.
DLG’s successful supply chain logistics ensures that these internal and external activities are well coordinated with each other. Our greatest challenge is to optimise communication between the various levels. In an optimal supply chain, all the links are connected so that information can be exchanged in real time.
DLG’s supply chain logistics goes far beyond transporting your goods from A to B. The process begins long before international transport begins. For example, you need to buy raw materials for your product, store them somewhere and maintain the stocks. Good planning is key: after all, you don’t want to end up with a full warehouse or be unable to satisfy demand. Our smart planning and continuous communication between external and internal chains provide a firm foundation. And that’s important, because well begun is half done!
Supply chain logistics goes beyond transport
Once the foundations of logistics and the supply chain are in place, it’s time for the next step: the transport! To optimise this process, DLG pays a lot of attention to predicting how a journey will go. Our experience in supply chain management teaches us that there are various factors that affect transport. That’s why we anticipate all kinds of potential changes in the flow of goods and cash in real time. This not only makes organisations smarter, but also more agile. And that means lower stock costs, faster deliveries, more flexibility and higher customer satisfaction.
