Logistics Management information Plan

logistics-planningThis month, as a company, Cerasis challenged our team to write a piece of content every business day in June. Today marks the successful completion of that goal with this blog post. I co-founded Cerasis almost 16 years ago with my business partners, Steve Ludvigson and Robert Johnson, and for the first time in our history last October, we decided to invest in marketing by bringing on Adam Robinson our Marketing Manger. Despite no marketing, prior to bringing on Adam, our company has grown each year since our founding. This is in part to having a great and scalable business model, but also because we survived on old fashioned cold calling and referrals from our current customer base.logistics website 300x225 Logistics Planning: 4 Phases of Sustainable Freight Management that Mirror Marketing Doing business that way can be scary if you don’t have a great company, but our philosophy is and always will be to have a great company who is focused on continuous improvement and providing value to our customers, vendors, partners, and employees.

We hired Adam because he was directly in line with our beliefs of not simply doing things just to do it. For sustainability and long term ROI in any service provided, whether it be marketing or freight management, there must be (Key performance indicators) KPIs set into place to allow you to track the performance of any segment of your business in order to attribute a tangible ROI on those activities. As he begun to roll out our marketing plans, I noticed the way in which he took great care to take specific steps in informing us in the way in which he goes about marketing. He planned and researched, he created and explained a strategy, then set out specific project plans with tasks, started executing, and then each month began to report on the data. I thought to myself, this is not much different than the way in which a outsourced logistics provider goes about taking over freight management for a freight shipper. I came to realize, there are 4 unique elements to sustainable and bottom line savings freight management that mirror the marketing plans Adam set forth.
