Logistics Outsourcing: Change from a service-provider to a business partner and Leveraging partnership models to create sustainable bottomline
A New model for „Partnership’ based Outsourcing: The growing emphasis on efficiency and integration between customers (shippers) and third-party outsourcing firms, has given rise to a unique collaborative model of Logistics outsourcing. Principle: “The focus on end-to-end supply chain effectiveness and optimization will lead to lower unit costs, which in turn will lead to lowest total costs”. Instead of an inward-looking focus on ownership of hard assets and „do-myself‟ approach; we need to focus on total supply chain effectiveness and process optimization by utilizing the extended value-proposition of the „logistics partner‟.
