Many of today's most successful companies have recognized that they can't handle all of their logistics planning on their own. These companies have turned to logistics experts for help in developing and maintaining a plan to save money. One of the most important tools in this process is third party logistics software. LeanCor provides this software to its clients, putting the power to control logistics right back in the hands of those companies. The software helps to improve efficiency throughout all parts of the supply chain, giving businesses the ability to manage their warehousing, transportation, inventory, and even supplier performance. With high-end tools at their disposal, good companies can start with the business of cost-cutting.
Supplier and materials management
Third party logistics software gives businesses another tool for managing their inbound logistics. A successful supply chain management plan rests on the assumption that suppliers will get things to a company on time and in good condition. Unless this first part of the equation is satisfied, it is all but impossible for a company to satisfy its customers on the back end. With third party logistics software, companies have the ability to track shipments and monitor supplier performance. This software allows businesses to manage their inventory in real time, and it accounts for trailer yard management if necessary.
The idea behind inbound logistics software is to remove the guessing from the logistics equation. Business people should be able to make informed decisions with the best, most accurate information. LeanCor's third party logistics software ensures that companies are able to do just that.
Outbound logistics and transportation
The supply chain also relies on effective transportation of goods. Outbound logistics management can be much more difficult, and companies are responsible for any mistakes that happen in this part of the process. Third party logistics software provides innovative tools for managers who want to get the most out of their outbound processes.
From designing routes to changing the way a business handles its freight auditing, third party logistics software has a solution for any potential problem. It is important for businesses to monitor and analyze their shipping performance. Back-end clients demand high performance, and it can be impossible to pull this off without the help of good analytics. This is where LeanCor's technology comes into play. Its primary purpose is to give competent managers another tool. They will no longer have to guess about where the problems lie in the supply chain. These managers will make their next decisions with precision.
Third party logistics software would be useless if it did not add value throughout the supply chain. LeanCor's technology helps supply chain managers with their site selection, sequencing, kitting, and factory internal conveyance, among other things. These tools analyze whether the company is operating efficiently and whether there might be a better way to handle warehousing. The goal for this software is to help managers create a culture of efficiency throughout a department and throughout the entire company. When all employees understand that the company is looking for ways to become more competitive, those employees will respond with better performance. Rather than simply living with the idea that some problems will exist, today's businesses are able to root out those problems with innovative software. They can then get to the hard business of improving performance.
