But even after your investments, why are you not seeing enough revenues? Why is your business still under losses? Since logistics is composed of huge goods and vehicle movement, the process often becomes complex.

The other day I was talking with Jeremy, an established logistics company owner, who wished to upgrade his traditional order supply and delivery business. With everything handled ‘manually’, his business was facing a lack of efficiency. The workflow was pretty complex which was giving him serious goosebumps. With huge numbers of customers, warehouses and numerous drivers to deal with, he was completely exhausted! This not only held back his company’s performance but further led to poor customer service. He wanted an upgrade of his logistics management but not a complete makeover, as this could risk his time and money. So what could manage his business seamlessly?
