Logistics Execution and Supply Chain Planning & Responsiveness
The global business community is growing at a high rate demanding proper measures to
ensure that every organization provides high-quality goods and services on time. Firms of
different sizes and operations face particular challenges in their daily activities. It requires
adequate planning, controlling, proper management practices and storage mechanisms to remain
relevant in the market and deal with any logistical issues that may arise.
Logistical challenges originate from the initial stage of raw materials suppliers to the
final stage where the customers receive the product or service. If a business overlooks any issue
in the whole process, it could be disastrous. The management ought to put measures in place that
deal with the logistical problems arising. Global logistics is also becoming common among large
firms which extend their operations to other nations and states.
A company desiring to spread its operations beyond the current location should consider
issues such as delivery time, quality of product, adaptation of global logistic plans among other
matters. Coordination and collaboration among all the firm's departments are necessary to curb
the issues which may arise during the operations. In developing nations, enterprises face a crucial
decision to deal with the lack of infrastructure, economies instability, shifting politics, limited
technological growth and lack of proper management skills.
Managers have to come up with strategic measures which deal with all these challenges.
The transition from local to global operations also has a considerable impact on the entire
functioning of the organization. No business can operate smoothly without logistical difficulties
and therefore strategies to streamline the operations must fall into place.
