Most of the time when people hear the word “logistics”, they immediately think of Amazon, UPS or other big mega corporations. However, logistics is something that can help all types of businesses and people succeed in the market. One of the main reasons for this skewed perception of logistics is because it’s such a broad term. In its simplest form, logistics means to handle the movement of goods. Movement can mean anything from warehousing to management, packaging and labeling. Logistics is all about being efficient and behind the scenes. It is a tool to help businesses organize and streamline the tedious processes such as shipping, fulfillment, and storage. In other words, it’s a helping hand.
So how can JIT help your business’ run more smoothly? First, let’s look at what JIT Services provides as their services. They warehouse, fulfill and process orders, ship goods, manage and track inventory… all while lowering your company’s operational costs. If you think about it, most of these services are requirements of many businesses and often are done in house. With JIT as your partner, however, these steps can be done and managed efficiently, while putting more money towards your bottom line.
Let’s look at an example. Say you are a candle-making company. You know your product, you love your product and you want to see it thrive in the world. However, orders for your candles begin to pile up. You are running out of space to store your entire inventory and cannot keep it all organized. You spend hours labeling, packaging and shipping your products, all of which keep you away from growing your business. After awhile, your company can start to fall behind and your lead times may possibly be delayed, turning away customers due to lack of efficiency. Sounds like a disaster, right? The good news is that JIT Services can manage all of those little things so that your company can focus on reaching your financial goals.
