Increase your global competitiveness

Progressing in line with the current technological developments and surviving among the competition is vital both for the logistics sector and also all other business areas that are related to and are born from this industry. Configuring technologies such as digital transformation, industry 4.0 and artificial intelligence in the right way helps to increase global competitiveness and strengthens the infrastructure of businesses. With 30 years of industry experience, we at NTT DATA Business Solutions are always by your side to turn factors that primarily affect the logistics sector, such as changes in foreign exchange rates, blockchain logistics applications, digitalization, integration and new investment projects into revenue.

Technology changes the way we conduct business and it also effects logistics industry!

The seven principles of logistics, which are to deliver the right product, in the right amount, in the right condition, to the right place at the right time for the right customer at the right price are changing through digital transformation technologies such as Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things. Along with the current business processes, qualifications of the workforce in the logistics sector will also change. Therefore, it is vital for organizations to address logistics strategies together with digitalization strategies to adapt and survive in global competition.

Does Your Logistics Team Face These Challenges?

Integrated Logistics Processes

Can You Control Your Logistics Processes 360°?

Dynamic markets, variations in demand, changes in foreign exchange rates, management of field employees and different regulations are just a few of the challenges that supply chain managers and planners face. Especially in companies with complex logistical processes and supply chains, it is becoming increasingly more important to coordinate the interactions between procurement capacity, capacity utilization and optimized inventory processes.

By monitoring your delivery, procurement and production processes, all integrated on a single platform, you can plan such processes more efficiently and transparently.

Supply Network Engagement

How Well is Your Supply Chain Interaction?

Creating, monitoring and managing a network of all actors and activities plays a vital role in the success of the supply chain.

As logistics becomes more transparent through digitalization, mobile technologies allow monitoring of systems anywhere, anytime. With optimal interaction of processes such as warehouse logistics, transportation management, tracking and monitoring with the supply chain, an integrated management model emerges. Rapidly increasing amounts of data can be easily processed and analyzed, making material flow and transportation processes more efficient.

ERP Integration of CEP (Courier, Express and Parcel) Service Providers and Transport Companies

Want to Expedite Your CEP Transactions?

As you carry out logistics activities through various CEP (courier, express and parcel) service providers and shipping agents, you make use of CEP service providers’ software. However, since CEP systems do not operate in integration your data is often recorded twice or more, causing loss of time. SAP’s integrated solutions provide you the automation you need for stages including shipment tracking integration, pre-pricing of freight costs and automated printing of service-specific shipping labels. All current business processes from delivery system to shipment notifications are integrated into your SAP ERP system. The integrated system provides better transparency as well as higher customer satisfaction.

Customs and Foreign Trade Transactions

Checking Exports and Processing Records Taking Too Long?

As commerce and production processes become global, more complex and stricter, national and international regulations are imposed on companies. Compliance with regulations also brings complex and detailed paperwork. Routine tasks, such as export declarations and calculation of customs clearance costs, are still mostly managed with conventional methods. But, managing these processes manually increases margin of error and costs.

SAP solutions help you to manage foreign trade processes efficiently and compete globally. They enable customs and foreign trade transactions as well as compliance with regulations (such as sanctions lists) and communication with authorities to run seamlessly. This contributes greatly to mitigating your financial risks and benefiting from the advantages of foreign trade.

Integration with Production

Are Your Logistics Operations Integrated With Your Production Process?

Speed, individualization and innovation: Today, all businesses are expected to deliver these three conditions. The determining factor here is the logistics process because the products must be rapidly produced and delivered according to individual customer requirements.

Monitoring your production processes in real time and responding immediately to potential risks is crucial. Therefore, logistical conditions should be integrated into the production process. Modern supply chain solutions, production planning, inventory management, warehouse management and logistic processes should be managed with end-to-end integration. Logistic processes integrated into production processes provide a competitive infrastructure that will be able to respond more quickly to fluctuations in demand and new customer orders.
