Outsourcing logistics is a strategic challenge for any business. If you’re a manufacturer or distributor, although there are various advantages to entrusting your inventory and all of your logistics operations to a service provider, this also creates sizable risks and impacts that absolutely must be measured and controlled before making a final decision on outsourcing.

Once the company has decided to outsource, this new logistics organisation’s management needs to be steered as a structured corporate plan that impacts most of the company’s departments.

During this workshop you’ll learn about all the key phases of this logistics outsourcing approach, from analyzing the suitability of outsourcing to starting up operations at the service provider and writing the specifications, selecting the logistics specialist and the key stages in deploying outsourcing.
