When it comes to project management, we might be thinking of a person who oversees the progress of a project, be it construction of a building, party planning, design, or whatever, there is just that guy who does what a manager does, manages. And we all know a warehouse is a large place where things are stored before being transported to go wherever they need to be. It all seems relatively simple. However, in the logistics industry, great project management makes all the difference and success.
What It Actually Entails
Well you are correct in believing that a project manager is there to oversee the process. A great manager allows the client to have a great experience. This will allow the project to be done correctly, with effective problem solutions, in the event of an unforeseen issue during implementation. The project manager will communicate their plan with each client, and commence an agreed upon plan. This will be overseen at every point by the manager to ensure that everything is done on time and within the client’s needs.
How It Complements Logistics
Sometimes we overlook a few simple things that could make all the difference to the success of your projects and reaching your goals. This could be a process oversight, or forgetting to include a figure in a calculation. One should pick a warehousing solution that fits the needs of your objectives. Such as having your stock in strategically places locations, such as having your stock stored closer to a dock to be shipped at sea, rather than in the middle of the of Johannesburg. Or having things stored in the Karoo when it needs to be at O.R Tambo. It just does not work for the logistic aspect of your project.
