In the simplest terms, AP processes in the logistics industry involve shipping something from Point A to Point B, and sometimes via Point C. Typically, one company picks up the goods via truck, another company transports the goods over a long distance by ship or plane, and finally, a third company ensures the goods are safely delivered to their final destination.
To ensure the more complicated stages of the process run as smoothly and efficiently as possible, many organizations choose to hire a logistics company to manage the process.
While it may seem relatively simple, if your logistics company deals with complexities such as managing the delivery of goods from multiple customers in the same freight shipment, the paper trail associated with this can quickly turn into a tsunami, making AP departments feel like theyâre drowning in documents.
