Default Any Logistics experts out there?

I am asked to build an elaborate TMS for my company and want to know what is the number 1 priority?

Time?
Outbound? Inbound?

I think time is much more important than direction. 24 hours a day is much more harder to manage than North, East, South and West.

I would always ask my supply chain dude what the lead time was on products...I think that's most important.

I don't really understand his question, but if this is an option, I'd say this.

I work with a third party supply vendor, and they usually like to keep their volume as low as possible because in their world, every square inch of their warehouse costs them money. So, the quicker things come in and out (as opposed to just sitting there) the more money they'll make.

Me? In my world, the most important thing is that there never be any backorders. For one, they're a pain in the ass because a store is needing something and they're obviously not getting it so they're going to either wait until the backorder is filled, or do a payout for whatever it is they needed. On top of that, the backordered part is going to ship separately from the rest of whatever else they needed to not only are they waiting longer, but now I'm paying freight (because there is no other option) twice instead of once. To top it off, if that backordered item is, say, a pen, then I'm paying $9 in freight to ship a $0.15 cent pen.

Just rambling...

I'll take a guess. He's applying for job, he has no clue about.

Don't worry how the patties get to you, just focus on flipping them burgers at the right time

Our warehouse is huge. We don't really store products because we do it remotely but we are in the process of moving into a new warehouse with a big ass fridge.

I'm not part of production but part of management. I was asked to create a system that would increase productivity and streamline a lot of our orders. I have experience in big accounting firms and the goal for me is to reduce 'paper consumption' by 50% and eventually go 'paperless'.

This is a project I was asked to take on.

My title for the company is an accountant.

My typical day involves moving around the company's money. Pay vendors as needed. Forecasting and budgeting is part of my job. Oh yea...I pay actual people. MAGA.

If I'm bored.....I would create financial reports and play around with the numbers.

Keep up to date on the fuel and gas industry.

As you can see logistics isn't my expertise even though I am very fascinated with the concept and was asked to take on this assignment.

Very fortunate.
