Shipping and logistics

Reliable and efficient transportation of goods is an essential component of the modern economy. For all actors, from shipping conglomerates to hauliers, fuel is a major focus as it represents a large and often growing share of the total costs as tougher emission standards are put in place. Optimizing fuel usage through both more efficient operations and better logistics planning is therefore a key challenge that needs to be addressed.

Along with rising fuel costs, the increased adoption of just-in-time logistics planning by customers is pressuring margins for shipping and freight companies, as timing deliveries more accurately raises costs and leaves less room for errors and delays. However, as the industry becomes a more integral part of their customers’ business, new opportunities of servicing their customers' logistics needs will present themselves. Therefore developing closer relationships with their customers, and building a better understanding of their business needs, become increasingly important to stay competitive.

ISEA's expertise in transportation and logistics range from strategy to operations and cover all functional areas from IT to sales. The cross-industry experience of our experts bring new insights and perspectives to the table that can be leveraged by transportation and logistics operators that routinely service a wide variety of sectors.
