"You can't manage what you don't measure" is an old adage that is true in logistics. Thus, you should measure and analyze all aspects of your logistical operations.
Benefits of measuring and analyzing your logistical operations:
It can help you reduce hidden inefficiencies and unnecessary expenses. This increases your profitability.
It can help you identify logistical problems before they get serious. This allows you to avoid operational disruptions.
It can improve processes and reduce order cycle time. This reduces the likelihood of shipping delays.
It can give you complete visibility of operational activities. This allows you to control logistical processes.
Always measure your operational processes and analyze them. Don't assume things are good because you don't see a problem. Operational problems usually start small and then compound into unmanageable problems.
