Background GrostLog 2018
As SCM and logistics are very dynamic fields, players in the field are constantly confronting with new operational issues and questions. Logistics is a process which interfaces and interacts with the entire company and with external companies, vendors, customers, carriers and more. Logistics is responsible for the movement of products from your vendors right through to the delivery at your customer’s door, including moves through manufacturing facilities, warehouses, third-parties, such as repackagers or distributors. It is not shipping and receiving, nor is it traffic or warehousing. It is more.
A large number of logistics startups were mentioned as potential disruptors in the areas of freight rates quoting, crowd shipping, end-to-end shipping, Fleet Management and data analytics. One category of disruptor — let’s call it “local network builders” — bucks the conventional model of centralized warehousing and expansive transportation networks for a distributed, localized structure that exploits the benefits of speed and dynamic flexibility at a competitive cost.
The movement of goods and services starts from farm to consumer reviewed to be critically vulnerable to the hazards of food safety contamination and cross-contamination with non-Halal materials or products. Application of syariah principles to the entire supply chain from sourcing, manufacturing, transportation, warehousing, ports, freight handling right up to consumer consumption. Involves religious belief that cannot be compromised at any stage and consumers are highly demanding in terms of quality and assurance when it comes to halal products. Here are the key areas of Halal Logistics :
- Halal logistics hub : Dedicated storage / warehousing in assiting distribution from manufacturer to global customer.
- Halal logistics Transport : Dedicated liner / transport for halal products to avoid cross contamination during transportation.
- Halal logistics route : Dedicated route in linking supplier to the customer for faster trunaround
- Halal logistics Management : Supervise all aspects of halal supply chain of manufacturer or distributor and act as solution & information service provider.
