The Challenges of Managing Freight Transport Logistics

Transport logistics refers to the complete set of processes that are necessary for product transportation. Due to its nature, transport logistics can be very complicated to achieve to a workable level, let alone an optimised one. While many challenges exist, specific issues are more relevant to certain sectors.
For wholesalers, common issues include fluctuating product demand, inventory turnover, and supplier coordination. Storage and staff limitations exacerbate these issues, which can result in the inability to fulfil orders.
For distributors, issues include fulfilment efficiency, route optimisation, and handling returns and replacements. It’s a highly competitive industry, and dissatisfied customers are likely to turn to your competitors.
Manufacturers' challenges often lie in supply chain integration, equipment requirements, and compliance with international trade regulations. It’s easy to lose profits and even operate at a loss if every aspect of the supply chain isn’t carefully monitored
