Managing LSP performance
Customer Case Study
Using e2log, a D2C e-commerce company drove a 40% improvement in LSP performance, and was able to replace their lowest-performing LSPs.
Lack of reliable performance analytics made logistics optimization impossible
Our customer, a direct-to-consumer e-commerce company, was using over 10 different LSPs to manage its global logistics operations, but had no tools or reliable data to understand and manage LSP performance.
Consequently, company perception of LSP performance was very subjective. At quarterly business reviews, LSPs presented their own data which always painted a pretty picture, but the company’s operations teams were constantly complaining about the poor quality and inconsistent execution of some logistics services.
Real-time LSP performance data drove profound improvements in performance.
With the end-to-end logistics process now managed via e2log, comprehensive data for every action taken – or not taken – by LSPs was captured and visualized on a real-time basis.
LSP performance vs. pre-defined metrics, as well as the data enabling the Logistics team to compare performance across LPSs also led to quarterly business reviews being conducted using e2log dashboards, developed both for the Transport and Logistics desk as well as individually for each LSP.
This focus on real data led to an improvement in LSP performance of ~40% – and some LSPs being replaced due to poor performance or reliability.
