Organization

An optimal organization of logistics is essential for an efficient supply chain.

Strong corporate growth and internationalization are common reasons for needing to change how logistics is organized. Optimizing processes and tasks to make them more efficient typically requires adjustments to other functions as well.

There are also great opportunities for improving performance in the organization of logistics itself. The network concept in logistics is accompanied by new challenges. Overlapping functions can create substantial synergies in order management, transportation management, program and production planning, materials management, and supplier management. Moreover, new technologies can aid with the implementation of these concepts.

The challenges often include the need to rework business models in these areas and to handle the new interfaces that result as well.

One ongoing organizational challenge for businesses is the modeling of cross-functional responsibility and the organizational support of overall cost analysis. And merely including logistics functions earlier into business processes is often not enough to alleviate the situation.
