Cracking the Logistics Code: It’s Mission Possible with Optimized Planning

Logistics customers are reshaping the market through their digital behavior. Companies that are slow to adapt will lose out to agile new players who can more easily respond to ever-changing demands.

Customers are Demanding the Impossible

New entrants are exploiting new technologies like digital platforms and big data analytics to offer better services whereas traditional players are experiencing a reducing bottom line and shrinking market share as they struggle to meet their seemingly impossible demands:

Impossible expectations
Customers want more for less, from faster deliveries at lower prices to more flexible time windows and locations.

Impossible competition
New players are reinventing the rules and space to offer innovative products and higher service levels at lower costs.

Impossible sustainability
Customers expect — and environmental regulators demand — that service providers reduce their environmental impact.

Impossible complexity
The old way of doing things no longer fits today’s enormous volumes and demand for greater speed and flexibility of both deliveries and returns.
