What is the Role of Transportation in Logistics?

Moving passengers and goods safely, from one location to another, is the primary charter of the transportation industry. Passenger security, government audits, and daily disruption to the supply chain are all common pain points across the industry. Avetta has helped transportation companies to dramatically reduce labor costs, reduce supply chain disruption, and successfully pass safety audits.

But what does transportation and logistics mean, exactly? At Avetta, our transportation logistics definition is the planning and controlling of procedures relating to the transportation industry. Ideally, these procedures are organized in the most efficient, effective way possible. The more streamlined your transportation logistics, the more you’ll please your customers and grow as a company.

Achieve your “No Harm Goal”

Achieve your “No Harm Goal”

The “no harm goal” is a notable objective that speaks to the level of care and professionalism of those that work within the transportation industry. However, just plastering it on memos or bumper stickers, isn’t enough to achieve success.

Proactive supply chain monitoring gives you the tools to ensure safety and sustainability on the roads. With Avetta, you’re able to verify the contractors and suppliers you employ are skilled and licensed in all of their necessary roles.
