When Do Logistics Companies Contact Us?
There are many reasons why logistics companies need management consulting.
First and most primary reason is when they are looking to acquire other logistics companies, and do not know what makes strategic sense, or want to do an exhaustive scan of the potential target markets.
Many logistics companies see a decline in margins, but struggle to come to terms with the reasons for these.
Large logistics tenders are becoming almost as complex as large IT tenders – they need a dedicated team made up of internal and external resources.
There are many other times when we have helped logistics companies in the past 20 years. Take a look at the graphic below to see if you still want to go solo and without help.

OUTPERFORM OUTSOURCE OUTPROFIT
The trend of outsourcing continues to grow unabated with the whole gamut of services, from simple to mission-critical tasks. There is not a single company on earth that does not outsource anything. It is not just about cost arbitrage, it is also a finer expression of division of labour at the organisational level. Like all leverage, outsourcing is a double-edged sword too. On one hand, it allows you to do more, faster. On the other hand, if it goes bad, it can easily kill your business. If you do not believe that is possible – you can google the Fox Meyer saga from the 90s and see for yourself.
