IT and Digital Logistics

Changes brought by Information Technology:

  • IT System Data: Computer-based information systems are used to collect information, process it, and make the management process more efficient and effective.
  • Interaction of IT with Logistics: IT has helped in availing information and using it to coordinate the different stages of shipping and supply chain management, thus making the process much more efficient. The paper-based information system which is much slower and ineffective is getting replaced by IT system.

IT Usage in Logistics Management:

  • Data Warehouse Facility: Warehouse facilities collect data about every item that is stored by them. This data can be used by companies to study consumer behavior and seasonal fluctuations and to improve future service.
  • Scanning and Bar Coding: This system helps an organization with regards to information about each & every item that is being moved every day and helps in inventory management.
  • Tracking and Controlling: With the help of IT, every item that is shipped around the world can be tracked at each stage. Because of this, problems with delivery or dispatching can be caught at the root and service can be made more efficient.

Benefits of IT towards Efficient Digital Logistics:

  • Communication becomes more streamlined, thus simplifying management functions.
  • Glitches can be recognized easily and solutions can be devised and implemented.

    This site appears to recieve a large ammount of visitors. How do you promote it? It gives a nice unique spin on things. I guess having something real or substantial to give info on is the most important thing.
