In a sector of increased competitiveness with very-demanding customers, controlling and understanding all your logistics data will make a big difference in your everyday business activities, and logistics analytics tools will enable you to take full control of your department or organization.
Monitor the expenses involved in the management of your warehouse
Warehousing is the management of space and time. The Warehousing Costs refer to the money allocated to the goods moved into or outside the warehouse. These expenses cover equipment and energy costs like ordering, storing and loading the goods, as well as more human costs like labor, shipment, or delivery.
The warehousing costs are a component of another logistics KPI, the total transportation costs. Measuring them is not an easy task, but once it is done it will facilitate your overall management and add a lot of value, something that senior management or investors will appreciate.
Warehouse being the main area of your business, it is important to measure and review the costs on a regular basis, so as to improve your operations and evaluate such improvement.
Relevant Showcase Dashboard
A logistics KPI or metric is a performance measurement that is used by logistics managers to track, visualize and optimize all relevant logistic processes in an efficient way. Among others, these measurements refer to transportation, warehouse and supply chain aspects.
Here is the complete list of the most important logistics KPIs and metrics, that we will discuss in this article in every detail:
Shipping Time: Spot potential issues in your order fulfilment process
Order Accuracy: Monitor the degree of incidents
Delivery Time: Track your average delivery time in detail
Transportation Costs: Analyze all costs from the order placement to delivery
Warehousing Costs: Optimize the expenses of your warehouse
Number of Shipments: Understand how many orders are shipped
Inventory Accuracy: Avoid problems because of inaccurate inventory
Inventory Turnover: Track how many times your entire inventory is sold
Inventory to Sales Ratio: Identify a potential overstock
As a warehouse manager, you need to have an instant overview of your facility, and know in one glance whether your factory is meeting its goals and sustains a reliable performance.
To carry this out, you need to track the right metrics and watch the operations. We have aggregated in another logistics dashboard example several KPIs to help you out with that. Directly impacting the previous dashboard data is the On-time Shipments: if these ones are late, so will the loading be - and with the possibility of creating future bottle-necks- and so will the deliveries be as well.
On-time shipment being the ratio of orders placed that are ready to be shipped within the time limit set, it is important to bring it as close to the hundred percent as possible. It indeed measures the performance in the management of your supply chain; if this metric is too low, that may translate trouble in the process between order placement and shipment, due to an increased demand that cannot be answered, or to planning processes that are not up-to-date for instance.
The other KPI worthy to measure, once the on-time shipment is managed, is the Order Accuracy. Having a perfect order rate as high as possible will ensure satisfied customers that will come back to your services, and guarantee them to friends and family. A perfect order is an order processed, shipped and delivered without any incident in between placement and arrival at the customers. It is on time, neither damaged nor inaccurate. If managed correctly, you will also save money in avoiding losses in returned goods that need to be shipped again.
WHAT IS THE ROLE OF ANALYTICS IN LOGISTICS?
Capitalizing on information is an important strategy for logistics services providers, in order to implement effective data-driven business models. By adopting business intelligence and analytics in logistics, your organization will yield value on different levels: by improving operational efficiency thanks to better resources utilization and allocation, and by increasing transparency as well as process performance.
The customer experience will also be strengthened, resulting in a greater customer loyalty and thus retention. Finally, the implementation of more effective business models will lead to a better revenue generation. To benefit from these assets, it is important to exploit any untapped data you still have and strengthen operational efficiency. This can simply be done by using an effective logistics analytics software that will enable a sustainable supply chain development and success.
Big data in logistics is revolutionizing the sector, and by taking advantage of the various applications and examples that can be used to optimize routes, quicken the last mile of shipping, empower transparency, automation of warehouses and the supply chain, the nature of logistics analytics can be streamlined faster than ever by generating insights with just a few clicks.
At AMIGO IQ, we have understood the incredible competitive advantage that analytics in logistics carry and how you can monetize all this data collected.

HOW DO YOU IMPLEMENT MODERN LOGISTICS ANALYTICS?
The purpose is to build a value-driven logistics network aligning supply and demand, with the right organizational practices and platforms. As for any new technology to adopt, embracing change is crucial to implement it the most frictionless possible across all the organization. Be aware that certain type of job and other responsibilities will be disrupted, and deep-seated work habits will have to adapt and adjust.
There will be resistance to change to be expect, as it is a frequent reaction. Hence the high importance to implement a trusted network of communication, trainings for the new tools and habits, and eventually a change management unit, that will help transition to the new ways of working.
You can likewise implement a new logistics management strategy, in agreement with top-management and along the change program. Assess the various internal and external changes that will come with the use of a modern logistics analytics software, and adapt to them. Then, strive for continual logistics monitoring and clarity, and use your analytics to carry out an outstanding logistics management,
identifying problems or bottlenecks in the end-to-end process before they affect the customer.
