In my last blog post I highlighted APQC’s recently released collection of key procurement benchmarks. This time I wanted to highlight our content featuring logistics benchmarks.
First up is a series called Logistics Benchmarks. These articles, based on the report Blueprint for Success: Logistics (Second Edition) and APQC’s Open Standards Benchmarking in logistics, discuss on-time and complete delivery, order cycle time, and perfect order index. Each article features a definition of the measure, performance across industries, and ways that organizations can improve their performance on the featured measure.
We’ve also released a Key Logistics Benchmarks collection that provides benchmarks for the consumer products/packaged goods, electronics, industrial products, and retail and wholesale industries. These articles feature a variety of measures, including:
- total cost to perform the logistics process,
- inventory accuracy,
- order fill rate,
- pick-to-ship cycle time,
- and more.
We also have the slide deck Warehousing and Logistics Benchmarks, which includes cross-industry performance on several measures related to warehousing, including:
- sales orders delivered on time,
- total cost to operate warehousing,
- freight cost,
- and more.
