​Continuous Improvement Strategies Drive Growth in Warehousing Services

This study provides an in-depth analysis of the global warehousing services market.  Warehousing and distribution may not be the core competency of shippers.  Shippers often find they can improve service while reducing costs by outsourcing warehousing to a logistics service provider (LSP). Other benefits from warehousing services or contract logistics (as it is called in Europe) can include reduced inventory, a faster payment cycle, better ability to handle demand surges, and several other advantages.

But that is just one side of the coin.  The market offers very few opportunities for LSPs to differentiate themselves from the competition.  Shippers find it difficult to select an LSP.  They often view LSPs as any other service provider, and choose the most cost-effective one. This selection criteria has encouraged providers to develop cost-effective options, such as multi-client facilities.

ARC’s recent interactions with LSPs and shippers reveal that the warehousing services market is based on continuous improvement strategies which serve as the only differentiator. This is an important clause included in almost all request for proposals (RFPs). LSPs prove to their potential customers that continuous improvement is not just a trick to help win a deal, but a culture in place.

In today’s demanding business environment, LSPs face numerous challenges, such as stringent regulations, unfriendly contract terms, and a disjointed supply chain which restrict them from becoming global and competitive.
