Logistics – an industry due for modernization
Modernization of different industries and technological advancement has led to simpler and smarter solutions for both consumers and businesses. Nevertheless, there are some industries still in need of modern innovation, and the logistics industry is undoubtedly one of these.
Logistics industry – a complicated affair
The logistics industry is made up of a large network of different sub-sectors, all of which are equally necessary to achieve the desired goal – transportation of your package / goods.
As a customer you are responsible for the cost of the various sub-sectors which combined makes up the cost of your delivery. When many stakeholders takes their share, the end cost will be proportionately high.
What can go wrong?
Any service that rely on a multitude of stakeholders is unfortunately more often the victim of delays and problems along the way than direct services between consumer and the company. Delays, theft, human mistakes and misunderstandings – the more people involved, the greater the risk.
But, in 2018 there must be alternatives that remove unnecessary intermediaries and lower the cost?
Sharing economy – the effective side of the coin
Sharing economy is a modern term that has not yet been given a set definition. Nevertheless, sharing economy, for most, defines companies that bases its income on transactions between individuals. Companies like Airbnb, Uber and Leieting follow this business model, and have all achieved success due to the nature of its model.
Removing unnecessary intermediaries and matching those with complementary needs together simplifies and streamlines processes while at the same time achieving a better overview for the consumers.
In addition to this, we create a much more resource-efficient society with sharing economy; When you have too much – others can use it. In this way, we allocate resources such as time, money, objects, housing and transport in a far more efficient and environmentally friendly manner.
