The goods and products can also be delivered directly to the customers or to the company from a supplier or a manufacturing unit. Once the outbound transport is loaded with the goods or products, it is free to reach its destination. Cross docking is considered an integral part of any organization’s supply chain process as it helps save the transport cost. It also helps in dividing the burden of huge load into smaller pieces so the delivery process can be made convenient.

Strength:


An efficient logistics partner can help ventures attain competitive advantage.

These are the building blocks which define the key activities of its network. Stocking, analyzing and storing also constitutes a major part of distribution network.

Weaknesses:

These are the factors which can have a negative influence over the performance of a logistics businesses. You have to make sure your stock is available and ready to deliver as soon as the order arrives. The quality factor can prove to be very sensitive in such scenario.

In addition to this, you may have to face numerous challenges in the initial stage of setting up your startup in this particular niche, therefore, it is necessary to evaluate and craft solutions to the potential weaknesses which can occur at any point.

Opportunities:


The logistics industry is full of opportunities for the people who want to establish a business that could generate revenue streams for them. Although these opportunities have to be utilized strategically. Globalization has changed the way with which distribution network works; the automated processes, use of technology, apps, exchange of data are the kind of opportunities on which logistics business is flourishing in this age of digitalization.

Threats:


Changing market dynamics are posing great threat to the logistics industry at the moment. There exists a lot of uncertainty in almost every logistics business. The way innovations are happening at such a rapid pace can bring a lot of challenges for this niche. If you are getting into logistics industry, you better make adjustments to your business model by making it more prone to adopting new changes. If businesses are not met with the new technological standards, they are most likely to be left behind. We, at OGS Capital, would make sure to devise your logistics business plan according to the disruptions which this industry may have to face in upcoming years.

In addition to this, a bigger factor which is being seen as threat to the logistics business is unavailability of educated drivers. The turnover rate of educated drivers is increasing with the passage of time and it is becoming difficult to coordinate with the kind of people who are not well aware about this business.

Automation is being an agent of transformation. Labor which is being used to ensure the quality of stored items is being replaced by the machinery, thereby depriving people from their jobs and not facilitating them with many employment opportunities.

PESTLE Analysis of logistics business



Economic:


The economic perspective in the logistics business is evolving at a very rapid pace. The gap between demand and supply is being filled by logistics business. The growing population is exerting an immense pressure, making it difficult for a logistics business to meet the demand with economical products. In addition to that, the availability of raw materials is becoming difficult to manage in the times like these.

The market prices are also an important factor to consider for this business. At times, it becomes difficult to consider options for logistics considering the peak pricing. The monopoly of the logisticians does not let manufacturer decide about opting for the economical option. This brings a lot of risks along which include operating risk, credit agreement, delivery contract, completion risk etc.

The changes in national and regional policies affect the manufacturing and distribution processes which eventually disturbs the logistics. Shippers have to continuously look for the ways through which they can trim the costs by utilizing lead time effectively. Following is a sample PESTLE analysis template of this industry which can enlighten you about its various aspects:

Environmental:


From the environmental perspective, the global warming and whole climate changing is making it difficult to save our natural resources, which ends up in further crisis regarding the unavailability of raw materials. Green logistics is grabbing much attention in the logistics domain of the business to promote low-carbon emission vehicles and minimal usage of energy.

Transport used in logistics industry is making a negative influence on the environment, hence, logistics businesses have to take care of the green aspects of the business as well. Being a business that deals majorly in transport and movement of vehicles, it is becoming an important aspect for the logistics industry to adopt such practices which saves the environment from any potential danger create by consumption of fuels. Customers appreciate such practices adopted by the companies, which, in turn, helps them build a sustainable competitive advantage in the longer run.

Social:


Plenty of social factors affect logistics industry given that a logistics business can be operated within and outside of the country. Several factors are needed to be considered before operating warehouses in a region. Social responsiveness and ease of the people are to be kept in mind before operationalizing the distribution network.

Legal:


If you are not aware of the legal aspects of the region in which you will be operating, there is a possible chance of many hurdles that you will be facing as a result of this. Foreign legal framework for logistics is mandatory prerequisite to follow. Things like currency issues, corrupt practices, money laundering, risk management, security breach, the compliance, accountability program, transaction activities, trade policies are some of the sample areas about which you must gather your knowledge beforehand in order to avoid any possible violation of law. There are several laws i.e. labor, manpower, working conditions, health and safety etc. that must be known before taping your business into another region.  Legal factors influence on the cost and profitability of any business and the same goes for starting a logistics company too. The law and order policies of the region are quite dynamic and keeps on changing frequently, hence knowing about the legal culture of the region for logistics businesses is one of many crucial factors for success.

Political:


The political factors have a great impact on the logistics industry. The developed economies are choosing to outsource their manufacturing operations in lesser developed countries to utilize cheap manpower. Hence, the operations of logistics are becoming more and more complex as a result of this outsourcing. The manufactured products have to be delivered to final location for the purpose of selling through distribution partners. Therefore, every business has to coordinate with a logistics business. In such scenarios, the political forces don’t spend much on building enough infrastructure for shipping and transport which hinders the growth of the industry. The recessionary time, in 2008, had a significant impact on the profitability of logistics industry. As the supply chain industry, has incorporated complex mechanisms, made transport extended and more expensive, the policies shaped by the authorities are not very dynamic observing such huge changes. This is making an impact on economic conditions on a macro level.

Owing to such drastic economic instabilities, it is becoming difficult for consumers to spend as much as they can, thereby reducing their spending power. If they would not be able to spend, it would not be possible for the government bodies and people in authorities to collect enough funds in the name of tax collection. This will limit the domain of government in shaping the dynamics of logistics industry as there won’t be excessive funds to spend on the progress.

This further results into numerous missed opportunities which could have been availed if the logistics and transport system was efficient enough and had enough capacity. This shows that economic stability depends a lot on effective transport and logistics system, which in turn, depends upon the infrastructure crafted on the grounds of public funded money.

Technological:


The logistics industry is undergoing major transformation in this age of digital revolution. Placing sample orders, handling and supervising, keeping track of storage timings will become completely digitalized. Chances are, logistics industry will become autonomous in almost every aspect. The biggest example that we have seen in recent times is the way Amazon is utilizing Drone technology for efficient deliveries. Comparing with man travel, this technology is five times faster which is less time consuming and more productive.

Technologies like robotics, self-driving vehicles, wearable gadgets and internet of things (IoT) are really transforming the dynamics of the logistics industry in the recent times. The Internet of Things is becoming a new cool in the logistics domain. The way it connects every possible device to the internet is making it easier for the distributors and transporters to carry out their activities efficiently. Logistics industry is making extensive use of template of IoT to incorporate necessary sensors to keep a check on supply chain process as well as on the quality of packages.

They have enhanced the automation factor thereby increasing the operational efficiency of the industry. The tasks which take a human to complete in one hour in this industry can be easily performed by these gadgets in less than or almost 15 minutes. This is becoming an easier way for all logistics companies in the industry to gain competitive advantage.

Important factors for success:



Efficient communication between transporters, clients and bases


Like any other business, starting a logistics business takes a lot of effort in the beginning. The main thing is to have effective communication among transporters, clients and bases. They are the key stakeholders in any kind of logistics business. Having a proper template for this sort of communication can be useful. Unless they are trained to coordinate, cooperate and integrate with each other, it would be difficult to kick start a logistics business.

Robust and quality oriented delivery schedules


Providing quality oriented services is quite mandatory to any logistics business. In fact, logistics business thrives on quality based services which none of their competitors can match. Providing timely delivery to the customers will assure their confidence in the services and on the other hands, the manufacturer will rely more on the services, eventually changing into their long-term contractors.

Having good relations with drivers/employees handling operations


Just like any other business, the manpower plays an important role here. It is important to keep your drivers and other employees happy, so their potential can be fully utilized for the services. They must be kept motivated and should be encouraged frequently so they can feel honored to be a part of this business. It is not always about the money or extrinsic factors, you need to focus on the intrinsic factors as well. Unless they are intrinsically motivated, they will find no sense of purpose in what they are doing and it would be all meaningless for them. This will eventually turn into lack of productivity, thereby affecting the progress of your logistics business.

Suggesting the right distribution strategy to your customers or end users.


For any service to be delivered in logistics business, it is important to suggest an apt distribution strategy to your customers as well as manufacturers. A template of distribution strategy is necessary to be crafted. Customers will only be interested in getting their products or services timely delivered with good quality, whereas your manufacturers will be interested in delivering value oriented services to their end users. Hence, it is your job to play an effective mediator. As a logistics partner, this puts you in a very tricky and sensitive position. Therefore, you have to provide an effective and efficient distribution strategy to your customers as well as manufacturers.

Making sure the convenience


The very basic idea behind any logistics business is to provide as much as convenience to the both parties; i.e. customers and manufacturers. You have to make sure your distribution is convenient at the both ends, even if that means you have to go through all the hassle.  Timely delivery, ensuring quality and efficient services would help you achieve the aspect of convenience. The success of the logistics business lies in considering these aspects.

Looking after the cost aspects of logistics business


The cost aspect of logistics business plan must not be neglected at any case. After all, you are in the business for earning capital as well. You need to go through your logistics business plans and templates over and over again to evaluate where can you minimize you costs without having to compromise on the quality of your services.

Ever since the globalization and technology has taken every aspect of the business by storm, the need for efficient services has grown manifold. Therefore, logistics businesses have to cater to the new trends in their global strategy. The important factors such as demand forecasting, transport management, capacity utilization of warehouse, loading rates etc. should be updated as the dynamics of the industry changes.
