Underlying gaps between LSP and end user:
Distribution Network Configuration: is one of the big challenges. Collecting and distributing the phone numbers, the location address of the suppliers, distribution centers, warehouses and even customer details are a tedious process.
Sharing Information: There is always a need to share accurate information with the work force.
Inventory Management: This involves quantity management and location of the inventory which needs proper planning and execution.
Distribution Tactics: This involves developing strategy on managing operations, mode of transportation and more.
Warehouse Management and Control: This is again an elaborative process and requires close attention. It often requires well organised controlling systems installed to the warehouse or distribution centre.
