How Do Logistic Providers in Ukraine Working

There are many different types of logistic providers in Ukraine.

Each has its development path, which influences the quality of services provided. A logistics provider can become effective only if it can offer a full range of logistics services. That's why it is essential for this type of company to not limit itself by performing just one task, but to have the best specialists working for them in each field. At first, sight, being a 'jack-of-all-trades' may seem like having less chance to excel at anything. However, that's what makes them stand out among other companies who perform one or two tasks well enough that they don't need any improvements. So let's look at some stages and departments of an effective logistic provider.

Firstly, let's talk about the main processes used in every company that performs logistics services. They include:

  • Logistics strategy development;
  • Logistical market evaluation;
  • Investing (setting up own infrastructure);
  • Staff training to meet logistic requirements;
  • Quality control and safety management.

All the stages mentioned above must be performed for a successful result. Considering their importance, we can easily say that the investing stage is the most important. This department includes leasing and purchasing property (buildings and warehouse equipment), developing and restoring warehouses and office space, construction works, interior design looking at the company's image, etc. Investing in one or several warehouses is an inevitable part of doing business in Ukraine nowadays. Even small companies that provide logistics services need to have their infrastructure to store goods (warehouse). Many such companies choose shared warehouses which means they rent out storage space from other owners rather than purchasing.
