During the operation of the logistics distribution center, it is necessary to work hard to explore ways to reduce costs for customers, and strive to minimize process costs when carrying out distribution activities.
As part of the e-commerce logistics system, distribution is a little piece but includes lots of work. It has all the elements in logistics and has the same place as large-scale logistics activities. It has only a big and a small relationship with logistics, and the essence of the two is the same. During the operation of the logistics distribution center, it is necessary to work hard to explore ways to reduce costs for customers and strive to minimize process costs when carrying out distribution activities. The optimization of the distribution process is not only the need for enterprises to reduce costs but also the key to the development of the entire logistics industry. Once a breakthrough is made in the optimization model and method suitable for the distribution process, it will have a huge improvement effect on the entire logistics industry, and at the same time will play a pivotal role in promoting the sound development of the economy.
How to optimize the distribution process and improve the efficiency of distribution is always a problem that plagues logistics companies. The traditional minimum cost and maximum streamline mathematical model is not completely consistent in the logistics distribution practice, it can only provide a basis for theoretical thinking. Many uncertain factors in practice reduce the flexibility of traditional theories in practical activities.
The e-commerce logistics purchase link is also called the stocking link, which is a series of activities to prepare the goods for distribution. It is the basic link in the operation of the distribution center. Generally speaking, in the current actual logistics activities, the stocking is done by the distributors themselves. In the case of logistics specialization, there are basically two modes: The first mode is that the third-party logistics company that provides distribution services directly assumes the responsibility of stocking, which is mainly done by placing orders or purchasing goods from production companies and distribution companies. The second mode is the separation of logistics and business flow. Orders and purchases are usually done by the cargo owner. The distribution center is only responsible for the purchase and tally, and the ownership of the goods belongs to the owner. What needs to be considered in the purchase process is who controls the purchase time, the owner or the distribution center? If it is the owner, the distribution center has to be on duty 24 hours, because the owner may purchase the goods at any time. If it is a distribution center, the appointment time becomes very important. Making an appointment one or two days in advance is how to optimize the distribution process for mature logistics distribution in Europe, America and Japan.
The logistics of the distribution center must go through the formalities. If you don't make an appointment, the distribution center will not accept it, because that will disrupt the plan of the distribution center. Because many enterprise managers do not understand logistics theory and the complexity of logistics operations, they do not understand the appointment time. The purchase link of the e-commerce logistics center has undergone detailed operations such as appointment, acceptance, and handover, which improves the traditional logistics purchase process of incomplete documents, uncertain time, and messy warehouse operations. It has achieved partial optimization of the traditional process and can meet the delivery requirements of customers.
