The Silicon Review
The speed of commerce today means that logistics and freight companies must respond with faster throughput times while lowering costs to squeeze more from already narrow profit margins. Market trends such as value-added services growth and increased automation are transforming the way logistics providers do business. E-commerce is growing exponentially, and the diverse fulfillment, distribution, and delivery points require integrated digital and physical inventories and transportation tracking. Warehouse management plays a strategic role in the supply chain by enabling inventory distribution, sorting, or cross-docking processes that strive to meet the market's growing demand. The transition from on-site data handling to the cloud opens new opportunities in the overall company management. The cloud-based supply chain management helps you schedule and set the deadlines more efficiently as executives possess all the needed data and can react on issues at once. It incorporates your resources from every stage of the logistic process in real-time.
Flowspace is the most flexible, reliable, and easy to use cloud-based logistics platform for businesses of any size to store, manage, and fulfill their inventory from warehouses and fulfillment centers across the United States. Unlike a fulfillment center or warehouse, Flowspace cross docks minimize the cost labor, material handling, and storage.
