Poor logistics data management is directly impacting on the end-customer

New research from leading European service logistics specialist, Carousel Logistics, has found that less than one half (45.0%) of organisations are using logistics data to their full potential. Commissioned by Carousel – and conducted by business intelligence and market analysis company Analytiqa – this exclusive survey found that poor data management was found to be at the root of many performance-related challenges, with 53.0% agreeing that underperforming technologies are directly impacting on customer satisfaction and retention levels.

55% of organisations are facing pressures to offer more visibility by customers, which they cannot currently deliver and 41.0% say that current systems also do not flex to meet changing requirements or support with specific functions while one respondent commented: “Improving visibility will help us manage service exceptions and in turn, customer satisfaction.”

Having interviewed senior logistics and supply chain professionals from 60 high-performance organisations, the research found in 57.0% of organisations, technology provisions did not meet expectations.

Lack of time and skill are barriers for change

Lack of time and the required skills are revealed as two potential barriers for change. 27.0% of respondents attribute poor data management to a skills gap, while more than one-half say they don’t have time to manage their data effectively (53.0%). When we asked which factor was having the greatest impact on restraining current digitisation performance, a ‘lack of resource/time’ also came out on top.

The future looks bright

The research did however show positive investment plans to improve current technologies and data management strategies. 78.0% agree that they plan to invest in the digitisation of their aftermarket supply chain in the next year and 71.0% are also investigating emerging logistics technologies in the next 12 months. 54.0% say they are recruiting more talent in the coming years to support with their logistics too.

The research forms Carousel’s latest white paper entitled ‘Big Data for the Big Picture: Accelerating your logistics with a data-driven solution’ which was released this week. The research was commissioned by Carousel, in conjunction with Analytiqa and includes feedback from organisations spanning the agriculture, medical and technical engineering sectors.

Brexit – a catalyst for change?

Carousel has published its latest White Paper, identifying how logistics innovation will be critical post-Brexit.

What is encouraging from the latest research for Carousel Logistics, undertaken by Analytiqa, is that many organisations are turning to innovation as a way of resolving many of the challenges Brexit could bring. Following an exclusive survey of senior logistics and supply chain professionals from 80 multinational organisations in the UK and Germany, we found that:

> Over a third (38%) of UK businesses plan to increase their need for better technology solutions, compared to just 18% of German companies

> Nearly a third (30%) of UK businesses say Brexit has prompted their business to be more innovative with solutions

> 44% of UK manufacturers foresee an increase in logistics spend post-Brexit.

But what if we don’t get clarity soon?

35% of UK and German companies were not preparing for Brexit because so much is unknown. However, history has taught us that digitalisation is often the key to maintaining and improving services, even within challenging circumstances. With that in mind, companies shouldn’t rest on their laurels and instead they should get themselves prepared, so they are able to adapt quickly to market needs and take advantage of new opportunities as they present themselves.

How can your logistics provider help with Brexit?

As well as assessing your own processes, getting ready for Brexit also means expecting much more from logistics providers. Post-Brexit it will be increasingly important for logistics service providers to step-up to meet these changing demands, with the priority being on providing the right technology systems, flexible network options plus economies of scale. All three will be vital in a post-Brexit landscape so start having those conversations now!.

Logistics technologies are falling short

‘Is your technology driving the future of your logistics?’

This White Paper explores the use and deployment of technology across the transport and logistics industry and the challenges companies currently face regarding things such as procurement, set-up and integration. It also offers practical advice on what companies and providers alike should do to address these now and in the future.

Commissioned by Carousel Logistics, in conjunction with Analytiqa, the research reveals that the success in implementing new technologies is fragmented across the industry. In many cases, the technology being used is falling short of expectations and failing to meet the needs of a business and its customers.

89.0% of those surveyed say that they are not completely happy with their current technology provision, yet 98% consider technology to be an important priority in meeting customer expectations.

Aftermarket: Not After-Thought

Customer experience may suffer in future if improvements aren't made in aftermarket and spare parts logistics

Aftermarket services are an attractive source of high-margin revenue but they can be notoriously hard to manage. Add to this, the rise of consumerism driving up B2B customer expectations and it becomes clear there's a challenge on the horizon for those with aftermarket and spare parts logistics.

You may be convinced that you need to improve your service offering to stand out in a competitive market but unsure exactly how to go about it. There could be glitches or pain in your supply chain, externally and internally, and you are looking for the solution.

If this sounds familiar, then Carousel Logistics' white paper is here to help. Entitled, Aftermarket: Not After-Thought, the paper provides insight from independent research undertaken by industry experts, Analytiqa. It is a unique insight into how market-leading businesses manage and measure services supporting their aftermarket and spare parts proposition, and what they are looking for in order to achieve further success in the future.
