Cost saving opportunities in the warehousing services market

The adoption of various cost optimization levers allows buyers of warehousing services to realize direct cost savings as well as enhance category management and value benefits (including reduced procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the warehousing services market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

  • Adoption of technology
  • Supplier Competition
  • Adoption of negotiation strategies
  • Optimization of procurement practices
  • Bundling of services

Adoption of technology saving aspects

Technologies such as barcode is a machine-readable data that consists of a description about the object that carries a barcode.

Many organizations are making heavy investments in robotics as they provide multiple advantages throughout the order fulfillment process in warehouses. By using robots, suppliers can increase the speed of their operations and improve service quality by reducing human errors.

Optimization of procurement practices saving aspects

Buyers prefer to engage with global suppliers. However, if suppliers do not have warehouses near to the delivery destination, they may engage with regional suppliers that have warehouses near to the end-customers.

Therefore, it is necessary for suppliers to have a preferred set of regional players as well to maintain an optimum mix of both regional and global players.

Bundling of services saving aspects

Buyers engage with suppliers that provide one-stop solutions by bundling warehousing services with transportation and packaging. This allows buyers to negotiate better on the price of services and reduce overall logistics costs and operational risks involved in coordinating with multiple vendors for different services.
