Business opportunities brought by logistics value-added services.
We used to tie the logistics and transportation, warehousing, etc, the wealth is not a small number, however, when I had an interview with a circle of logistics enterprises, I found that logistics value-added services provided or will bring us more business opportunities. The so-called value-added services, is on the basis of the complete basic functions, according to the customer demand for all kinds of business activities, if defined its needs, not only can the customer including suppliers, can also be included logistics enterprises and so on. Transfar logistics base is a good example, it is not in the logistics industry itself, its purpose is to build a platform, on the one hand, through the enterprise itself visibility for logistics enterprises to expand into more sales channels, on the one hand, also according to the current needs, to provide all kinds of training for logistics enterprises, such as policy changes to adjust and so on. What's more, it can provide convenience for enterprises and reduce the no-load rate through the network construction of "tianluo network". In a word, the establishment of this base has fully grasped the needs of logistics enterprises, as a downstream customer of the supply chain, and found business opportunities. That, of course, not every enterprise has the ability to do, it needs enough capital, sites, awareness and support of the government, but this does not mean that small and medium-sized enterprises can't find the business machine from logistics value-added services. In the interview process, I will come into contact with such a company, it does not have its own transport goods, nor the team, but it skillfully as a "matchmaker", set up a logistics enterprise transport of goods between Banks and the red line, make full use of the status quo of loans for smes, is engaged in the financial logistics industry. For example, A supplier to entrust B to transport goods logistics enterprises, the enterprise can through their own credit to help it in C bank loans, finally from the logistics transportation charges paid to B to get into, it can help logistics enterprise to retain customers, can also help suppliers loans, Banks are also at A relatively low risk to get A client, it may be said "the quartet win together". Such value-added services are also provided, and are fully utilized by suppliers, logistics enterprises and Banks. This gives us more ideas for development. When the logistics industry development to a certain stage, expand blindly transportation, warehousing and other business, has been difficult to meet the needs of customers, at the same time, with more and more into the enterprise, which is bound to produce price competition or the phenomenon of "the big fish eat small fish", therefore, in which new entrants want to find business opportunities, and avoid the traditional logistics industry "into the low threshold, high development threshold" of the status quo, to seek value-added services is a good opportunity, such as special open a consulting company assist the logistics enterprises in employee training, or to develop a software service dedicated to assist enterprises to manage customers and so on. Of course, all this is just a vision, how to implement, how to profit from the "big cake" of logistics, but look at the wisdom of the masses.
