Danish company Lyngsoe Systems has launched a new range of consultancy services it says can help postal operators make their logistics operations more efficient.
The logistics software and RFID technology specialist says its new business process management services come as postal operators across the world seek to eliminate waste from their systems to respond to declining mail volumes and the digitisation of society.
Lyngsoe is offering to find improvements by optimising the logistics process within the postal system.
The new consultancy services include a range of process measurement services, process reporting and process improvement services.
Keld Ole Nielsen, sales and marketing director at Lyngsoe Systems, said improving the quality of postal logistics systems went hand-in-hand with cost-saving.
“Typically, total costs related to quality issues can represent around 10-40% of a company’s turnover, so targeting them can offer an extraordinary opportunity to deliver waste reduction and efficiency savings from existing processes,” said Nielsen.
Lyngsoe Systems says its new practical consulting services will identify how to make postal processes “razor sharp”
According to Lyngsoe, its new consulting services take on a particularly practical form, such as examining a customer’s transport movements at sorting or distribution centres, then monitoring and assessing the movements of vehicles carrying mail to identify delays and improve the logistics flow.
The company can use its automated logistics technology and RFID tracking systems to support its goal of making processes “razor sharp”, it said.
“It is important to understand the difference between practical consulting and a typically generalist management consultancy,” said Nielsen.
“Practical consulting is based on having postal know-how and developing a solid business case through close dialogue with the customer, which is then facilitated by implementing best-practice process and measurement methods.”
Lyngsoe has been designing, installing and maintaining track and trace and control systems for more than 40 years for the postal, airport and supply chain industry, and currently claims more than 3,100 installations in 60 countries.
