Procurement, Logistics and Transportation


Procurement is the acquisition of goods and/or services at the best possible total cost of ownership (TCO), in the right quantity and quality, at the right time, in the right place and from the right source for the direct benefit or use of corporations, or individuals, generally via a contract. Simply in other words, the range of activities associated with the buying of goods and services to support business operations is called procurement.

Traditionally it was thought that competitive advantage was the result of marketing and advertisement expenses and purchasing was not given due importance. Even in the recent past, purchasing was regarded as being services to production and other functions of the company and thus it was given limited attention to issues concerned with the procurement. But in today’s competitive business world, these traditional approaches can no longer guarantee competitive advantage in all cases. Companies, therefore, have to find other means of succeeding. This is nothing but succeeding through effective utilization of procurement processes. Now managers have realized that purchasing should be considered as a key strategic business process rather than a narrow specialized supporting function to overall business strategy.

Typically, a company normally spends about 60-70% of revenues through procurement, and if this spending is managed efficiently and effectively, company can enhance its competitive advantage significantly. Any savings in procurement directly contribute to the company’s bottom line i.e. profit of the company. To achieve same amount of profit through marketing and sale, the company’s sale may have to be increased proportionately. In most cases this may become difficult task for many companies.

Savings in procurement can be achieved thoroughly by ensuring continuity of supply at the best possible TCO, reducing overall lead-times, maintaining quality and durability of supply of inputs, promoting innovation in supply, improving supplier’s reliability and services, maintaining optimum inventory and applying many other ways related to supply and procurement.

Logistics means having the right thing, at the right place, at the right time
