Focus on digital transformation
Stakeholders across industries are increasingly inclined towards digitally enabled change. Transforming key challenges into opportunities will require companies in the transportation and logistics sector to define a digital strategy that is tailored to the value drivers of their organization. They can start by building on the company’s current product portfolio, customer relationships, and other assets. This will encompass defining and executing objectives that digitize core processes, reinforce the business model, and venture into new frontiers.
Agility in resource allocation
Flexibility in resource allocation makes It possible for transportation and logistics companies to gain higher TRS. As the sector is largely asset-intensive, it becomes necessary to make huge strategic bets. It is no longer effective to make strategic decision based on the previous year’s data. Strategic decision-makers can unlock the benefits of agility in the transportation and logistics sector by overcoming common barriers that hinder flexible resource reallocation such as a lack of intent, an inadequate process, or the absence of the right skills and mind-sets.
