It’s that time of year again. We’re recovering from the holiday hangover of stress and hustle, and we get to that point where we resolve to be better and do better as January approaches. Have you made your New Year’s resolution, yet?
Most of us will. Sixty percent of Americans say they will make a New Years resolution. But only about 25% of us will still be working towards these goals in 30 days, and about 8% will actually complete them. Those are grim statistics. But our DFW courier company has the perfect resolution for your business. We’ll even help you achieve it. All you need to do is get FIT in 2020. And we aren't talking about your biceps.
The first step to becoming a better business in 2020 is to find the freedom to work towards your business’s core competencies. How can you do this? By letting go of those processes that aren’t central to your operations. That includes most of your transportation and logistics processes including storing, packing, and transporting.
Outsourcing your secondary operations leaves your business free to focus on the important things- like your passion and your customers. This freedom also comes with a savings. Not only can your business experience a cost savings, but also a time savings. Really, they're the same thing, aren’t they? Time is money, after all. Especially when you’re busy.
Now that we’ve established you need to let some things go in the New Year, let’s consider how much you should let go. Once you find the right delivery team, integrate as many of your T&L processes as you can into your new third party logistics plan. This gives you a twofold advantage.
One- the more logistics processes you bundle into your plan, the more you save. Economy savings, as we like to call it. Hiring a DFW courier company to store your items, pick them, pack them, and ship them gives you more of that freedom we talked about, while presenting you a cost savings for multiple services with the same company.
Two- hiring the same transportation team to handle many different T&L processes means less runaround and less work for you. No need to keep straight who’s storing your items and who is delivering them. No need to call around to multiple different companies when you have a slight change in plans. One organization with one integrated logistics plan means a simpler New Year for your business.
The last point of your FIT 2020 resolution is technology. THIS is the year your business keeps up with the changing times. Partner with DFW courier company who is committed to doing the same. These days, technology plays a huge part in transportation and logistics processes. From the initial scheduling of the delivery, to the fulfillment software that assists us in picking the right items, to the route that gets us there on time and securely, technology is woven into our everyday operations as transportation providers. As you seek the right courier to keep your organization fit in 2020, the use of technology should be a deciding factor.
