  • I think I have to agree that constant communication is instrumental in maintaining the consistency of relations with customers. I had the experience of handling a sales team when I had my own business that we have a monthly review which means we had to call on the client by phone or by a short casual...

    replied to Continual training of staff
    The training of employees is common for big companies because they have the capital to make a long term investment on its employees. But for small companies it is rare to find a training program, whether in-house or paid training outside, because they donít have the capacity to spend for the improvement...

  • We have to take note that the warehouse is a major component of the logistics business. I am saying this because I have noticed some colleagues that say the transport is the most important. Thereís no need to put a label on such components. Anyway, the warehouse is desired to be always in tip-top shape...

  • In one discussion with a colleague over the weekend, I was surprised by his information that the drone for security is operated with the use of the internet. That means the operator can be in a remote place and could launch the drone to the air for the monitoring of the area. Our cctv system at home...

  • Discipline with transport personnel

    It is the truck driver that is the center of attention when it comes to deliveries and I have to agree that the driver should be of good health in body and in mind. I have read of news reports on accidents where investigators found out about a driver who used drugs or intoxicated and sometimes the driver...

  • I guess it depends on the kind of labor union that a company has. When the union has activists for officers, the company should be very diplomatic and it is imperative to have a good relation with the union officers. Some unions harass the company by wildcat strikes or sometimes sit-down strikes where...

  • Safety measures on the road by a good driver

    Aside from the spare tire and other necessities needed by delivery trucks when on the road, what is being overlooked is the health of the driver and the helper. When the driver is not feeling well, he should not drive especially for long distances because that can be a cause of accidents. In the analysis...

    Factionalism among the staff

    This might be an exception rather than the rule but there was a case where there was strong factionalism in one office. The manager confided to me that his staff were divided into 3 factions that competition is evident. He was afraid that the factions would create trouble which is not improbable. So...

  • In one discussion in another forum, I have learned that big trucks have the durability on the road particularly the flat tire which is not common. They say that a semi (a rig) can run even with a flat tire because it has 18 wheels unlike the small trucks with 6 wheels. Anyway, we cannot do away in using...

  • Maybe the government has evaluated the number of accidents as per the report because the speed limit is usually imposed for the safety on the road. But if the speed limit is to neutralize the traffic I guess the resulting effect will be the opposite. Maybe they should reconsider that regulation that...

  • A sudden dip in sales is panic time

    Do you think it is time to panic when there is a sudden dip in sales? It happened to my business before but we tried to stay calm and steady with our procedures. Calling the customer for touching base is not really that effective. What we didnít know is that someone had been pirating our big customers....

  • Over here we have a truck ban during the daytime from Monday to Friday so we have no choice but to have a night delivery. Itís actually the night delivery that is popular even before that truck ban law was in place because the weather is cooler Ė most trucks here have no air conditioning so you can...

    Avoiding the peer factor

    One issue in the inter-relationship of workers is the peer factor which is the direct competition among the workers. For a small company, it is advised to have a ranking in the position so that workers in the same position will have a seniority of sorts. One example is the position of attendant where...

  • When you pay in advance that is the advantage for the supplier because they can use the money for the period that you have advanced the payment. Over here it is always the ploy of the customer to ask for a delayed payment (on credit for 30 to 60 days) otherwise it would be very difficult to obtain a...

  • It is really important to be always on the lookout for the trend especially if the product that you are selling is not a basic necessity. You wouldnít really know if the product will remain popular in the market when there are competition around for the same type of products. It really pays to be alert...

  • Obtaining cheap but low quality supplies

    This is a lesson that I have learned in my previous business that the quality of the products is more important than the price. Just one complaint you get from a dissatisfied customer can bring down your business especially if that customer is influential. Selling quality products has its benefits in...

  • One of the challenges is my knowledge of problems in the rural area. It is much cheaper to have the warehouse in semi-rural areas which is not too distant to the city. However, there are provinces here where rebel groups are present. It is sad that those rebels are fighting against the government at...

  • You may be surprised to know that used clothing stores are raking it well nowadays. An economic analyst said that the public is now aware of the fashion and they can get cheap fashionable clothes in the used clothing store. But mind you, those cheap used clothes are from abroad, usually USA and Europe...

    Giving more benefits to the workers

    The workers union sometimes abuse their position in issuing their demands. Although it is for the benefit of the workers, they should also think of the welfare of the company. When the benefits are excessive the company will suffer. This is not really union-busting but only for moderation purposes regarding...

  • This may not be my main line but I remember one trader of imported goods that they only rely on Fedex. I know that there are other cargo shippers and carriers in your country particularly with the ports that you mentioned and it is better to manually check the list in your search one by one. If I were...
