When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world last year, it placed the logistics industry in the eye of the storm. It was indeed a black swan event, which forced a multitude of organizations from different industries to take a hard look at the supply chain methods. The turmoil was worst felt by the shipping industry—the backbone of the global supply chain. Especially with countries imposing indefinite lockdowns, many shipping lines had to reduce the operation of their ships, which even affected the sourcing of food, medicine, and other necessities. As the containers piled up in the ports, different stakeholders along the supply chain were also impacted by the disruption. It was during this time that LogiSnetic—a digital supply chain solutions provider—came to the rescue, utilizing its robust and innovative offerings to map a clear-cut course for organizations and help them sail through the pandemic’s challenges. “Amid the lockdown, warehousing and finding space on a vessel were two major challenges, and we helped a number of our clients find exactly what they needed in terms of their supply chain management,” says Lawrence Wan, Co- Founder and Managing Director of LogiSnetic.
On that note, one of the major differentiators of the company—amid pandemic or otherwise—has been the fact that it does not act like a traditional 3PL or distribution or logistics solution provider; they try to coalesce and digitalize the entire process. “By doing so, we are trying to bring in more visibility into our clients’ supply chain management. We work as a part of their team,” says Wan. Owing to such credibility, the number of organizations leveraging LogiSnetic’s expertise and connections with logistics and warehousing service providers to secure their supply chain is only increasing by the day.
Delivering Supply Chain Excellence
LogiSnetic’s end-to-end, state-of-the-art supply chain management platform can aid a myriad of tasks ranging from warehousing, inventory management, freight forwarding, and distribution to integrated and cold chain logistics. The platform can also seamlessly integrate with the client’s existing infrastructure, giving them full access to any information they need across their supply chain and streamlining interaction between all the parties involved from a single pane of glass. Wan adds, “Our platform, while innovative, is also a lot simpler, designed to help serve our customers better, more effectively, and efficiently. In an industry where communication can be quite fragmented, our platform offers real-time traceability at every step of the shipment (from pick up to last-mile delivery).” LogiSnetic’s clients can thus proactively strategize, plan, and schedule their supply chain processes and remove the legacy constraints in their processes to achieve seamless workflow without a hitch.
At this juncture, LogiSnetic’s prowess can be exemplified by a recent client success story, where one of LogiSnetic’s clients was participating in an expo in Hong Kong. After the expo’s completion, the client had to ship their supplies and equipment back to Shanghai, China. Although the client had prepared beforehand from their side in collaboration with LogiSnetic, the port denied passage to Shanghai at the last minute. That was when LogiSnetic, using their special skills and expertise, mapped out a reliable contingency game-plan by coordinating with various service providers to facilitate a seamless passage back to China. At the end of the day, LogiSnetic managed to ship the goods without incurring any issues and additional costs to the client. “This is what LogiSnetics does. When we say ‘yes’ to a client, we are ready to go the extra mile to help them achieve their goal. And we try to come up with the best solution cost-wise, as well as performance and schedule-wise, no matter what,” adds Wan, proudly.
Riding the coattail of such success stories and accomplishments, LogiSnetic has successfully established itself as one of the leading solution providers in Hong Kong. As such, the company is now quickly expanding its footprint on a global level and acquiring new customers every day. While global expansion is underway, the company is currently focusing on its innovation by leveraging AI and blockchain to address the various requirements of its clientele. “Digitalization is the future of the logistics industry, and we will be at the helm of helping clients unlock its full potential,” concludes Wan.
