The Logistics Problem

A company has to face a lot of challenges in its journey to become successful. One of the main challenges they have to face is logistics challenges. B and B International Trading, like any other firm in the FMCG market, confronts several logistical issues that can have an impact on its operations and overall business success. Some of these challenges are listed below:

➔ Limited Transportation Options: Because of Nepal’s rough terrain and infrastructure, B and B Trade had restricted transportation choices, particularly when transporting items to rural places.

➔ Security problems: Security issues arose during deliveries, in some areas of Nepal where they had challenges like theft or hijacking of goods.

➔ Vehicle irregularity: Because the company did not have dedicated vehicles for delivery, they had to rent them randomly. As a result, they had to deal with several vehicle irregularities. These challenges resulted in late deliveries, unhappy customers, and money loss.

➔ Careless Drivers: As the drivers were untrained, they didn’t care about goods and handled them carelessly which damaged their goods and also their reputation.
