The Basics of Prophesy Logistics
Tuesday, 24 July 2012
Logistics is the receiving, warehousing, packaging and shipping of raw materials, products and documents from one point to another. The concept of making sure that you always have the right items in stock, in a sufficient quantity, at the proper location and within an appropriate and budgeted price range is what companies such as Prophesy logistics are all about.
It is the science of incorporating and managing all of the processes associated with the global supply chain of any business today. Prophesy logistics offers services such as the securing, monitoring, reporting of any and all applicable data and information regarding the movement of resources, materials and products while in transit.
The complexities of any business’s supply chain can be overwhelming for most companies today. The concept of purchasing raw materials in one location, consolidating those purchases and shipping the materials around the globe and ensuring that the company has it in time is crucial to the success or failure of the company. Furthermore, once the raw materials have been transformed into a final product, it must be packaged, warehoused, shipped securely to the buyer or end user.
Procurement logistics includes the supply management of materials necessary for a company to operate. Very few companies start with the raw material and produce a final product which is shipped to the end user for consumption. In most cases, the company will require screws, bolts, packaging materials, metal, wood, plastic and more. The purchasing, consolidation and shipping of these materials to the company is procurement logistics.
Production logistics is the centralized part of the supply chain which actively links the procurement of materials to the distribution of the final product. This type of service monitors the internal flow of material, including the storage, handling, assembly, finishing and then placing the finished product into storage.
