Many organizations still manage their warehouses and distribution as pure cost centers. That means companies need to keep the overhead of these essential functions as low as they can. Without the wherewithal to achieve outstanding productivity and efficiency as well as cutting costs, it is difficult for warehouse and distribution operations to add value to companies and help them stand out in their supply chain networks.

In addition, logistics workforces often lack the tools to perform at optimal effectiveness, which can lead to higher operational margins. Forward-looking business and supply chain managers look for solutions that help them transform operations and the way people work for maximal business impact without draining their budgets. They understand that effective supply chain management can be a powerful differentiator for companies.

It can help organizations become more agile, compete more strongly, and implement Lean and other initiatives successfully. What’s more, it can re-cast the role of supply chain operations to contribute to profits instead of overhead.
