Transportation and logistics businesses take care of the shipping and storage of goods on behalf of their clients. They track real-time data on the movements of goods which involves a lot of paperwork because of variable operational expenses like the toll fees, permit costs, etc.
Managing transportation and logistics can become even more intricate since companies have to keep track of their vehicle fleets, staff duty rosters and shifts, loading and unloading, etc. If the freight management company handles supply chain for their clients, then they will also need to manage the inventories as per the demands in the market.
