If you want to scale your business to EU success, there's no one size fits all solution. But optimising your supply chain using global freight services could be one way to take your business from the domestic market and into Europe. And outsourcing your logistics and fulfilment services could transform the way you do business.
Find the right people
So, you want to take your business to the next level in Europe. First, you need to find the right people. So when you're looking for a fourth-party logistics provider to handle your European supply chains, you'll need to consider the following:
- Do they use the latest supply chain optimisation technologies?
- Do they have solid infrastructure connections across Europe to meet your needs?
- Do they have a solid understanding of the industry to provide the services you need when you need them?
Before successfully scaling your business in the EU, you'll need to set up your systems before you need them. Using a supply chain solution provider to handle your transport, warehousing and fulfilment services means that your 4PL provider puts everything in place. At the same time, you get on with other aspects of scaling your business, ready to open up to new markets.
Focus on customer service
Every EU nation has its own language and culture. And navigating communication can be a challenge when you're scaling your supply chain. Service problems mean your customers are four times more likely to switch to another provider. Create a solution using a 4PL provider, however, and 70% of them will do business with you again. Of course, the customer is always king. However, as your supply chain grows in complexity, a good tip is to let 4PL fulfilment services on the ground handle those complexities for you and maintain a streamlined B2C dynamic.
Get supply chain visibility
Scaling your business means meeting greater customer demand. And that means having visibility across your supply chain. You'll need real-time data to respond to customer demand faster and more accurately. And that can take valuable time your managers don't have.
Streamlining your supply chain using a fourth-party logistics provider frees up the time and money you can use to successfully grow other aspects of your operation. And while 4PL services handle your logistics, you're free to focus on core competencies and grow your business.
Streamline your service
Every hitch in the supply chain can slow down your efforts to expand. And with 27 countries to deal with, the potential for things to go wrong is multiplied exponentially.
Providing a single point of contact for new customers at every step of the supply chain delivers professionalism and operational excellence at every step. And streamlining your supply chain has other benefits, too — your 4PL fulfilment services provider will have a clear overview of your logistics to find efficiencies and last-mile solutions that make you the go-to business in your niche.
Outsource to a fourth-party logistics provider
