In order to make any improvement to your business and the way it operates, it’s necessary to examine it and address the problems you discover. And this is just as true when it comes to managing the way you approach logistics. Without the right knowledge and experience, however, identifying those problems can be difficult. Some can be subtle – but address them, and the cumulative effect on your operation can often be significant. In this way, a consulting fee can more than justify itself in the long-term – saving you considerable money, time and hassle.
In a 2016 survey by Deloitte of Fortune 1000 companies, 88% of the 210 senior executives said that they would be pursuing cost improvements over the next 2 years irrespective of revenues increasing or not. The top cost drivers were:

- required investment is growth areas
- international portfolio performance
- reduction in consumer demand
If the biggest corporates are looking at Cost Management as a major factor in their underlying strategy, working in the competitive world of e-commerce, it may be time to have a good look internally at the very heart of your business to see where you are allocating valuable resources (software, people, infrastructure) and the opportunity cost of putting them to better use.
