The explosive growth of e-commerce is one of the reasons why logistics efficiency is becoming increasingly important. Customers increasingly expect goods to be delivered the same day. In order to meet this demand, logistics service providers are constantly looking for opportunities to innovate their processes.
An example of this is the switch to paperless working. Electronic data exchange reduces the number of actions required.

By integrating different IT systems, they speak the same language and the speed of doing business increases. It becomes easier to connect new trading partners.
Another advantage of better electronic communication is that data sharing creates opportunities to get a better and more complete customer view, have better insight into stocks and automate restocking. It also makes it easier to combine orders from different customers.
