In recent years, with the rapid development of modern logistics, logistics management has increasingly penetrated into the management of enterprises. Logistics cost management is the core of logistics management in production enterprises. In manufacturing enterprises, logistics cost is a cost expenditure item other than raw material cost. However, in order to reduce the logistics cost of enterprises, most enterprise logistics managers continue to explore ways to reduce the logistics cost through learning, practice and summary. Nevertheless, the value of logistics cost of domestic enterprises is still in a continuous upward trend.
At present, the logistics cost management level of China's production enterprises is low and the logistics cost is high, so it is urgent to take measures to improve it.
Optimize logistics system and improve logistics management
If enterprises want to reduce logistics cost, they must understand their own actual logistics situation, establish logistics cost database and analyze the logistics system; By comparing the basic data, we can find the reasons for the high logistics cost and improve it; With a comparative basis, we can set goals and establish a new logistics system.
Enterprises should start with optimizing logistics process and improving logistics management to reduce logistics cost. By setting up a special logistics management department to realize the specialization of logistics management, establish a modern logistics concept, and re-examine the enterprise's logistics system and logistics operation mode; By learning from the advanced logistics management methods and combined with the actual situation of the enterprise, we can find out the methods to improve the logistics management and effectively reduce the logistics cost of the enterprise.
In addition, enterprises can improve the storage efficiency by improving the logistics system, shortening the logistics transportation distance, reducing the inventory and turnover links, and using reasonable inventory, which is also an effective way to reduce the logistics cost. On the premise of ensuring the material quality and delivery time, enterprises can avoid storing more materials to prevent defective products and non arrival on schedule, save the occupation of working capital, and then reduce the material storage cost.
Reengineering business process and selecting logistics mode
In order to adapt to the current competitive situation, the logistics management department of production enterprises must carry out market-oriented and customer-oriented process reengineering, and change functional management into process management; Through process reengineering, we can establish a process that is market-oriented, customer-oriented, customer evaluation as the service assessment result, and reflects the operation efficiency and effect, so as to better meet the needs of customers.
