We’ve all heard the adage, “Your first impression is a lasting impression.” This is often true because you only have one opportunity to make any impression. In an industry as complex as logistics, a positive initial reflection is vital.

Get Feedback About Your Logistics Management Impression

Other people naturally like to talk about the things occurring in their world. This means people talk about news that affects their world. What is the perception of your logistics management style with your employees and customers? Have you asked for feedback lately? Feedback helps companies keep track with their excellence goals. It also helps you uncover how to better serve your community.

Here are some questions to ask of your logistics management impression:

    • Have you compared this year’s loss prevention cost figures with last year’s? Unhappy staffers will pilfer if treated disrespectfully. Those employees who complain about unfair treatment can undermine your ability to run profitably. Pilfering can be reduced when you treat employees respectfully.

    • What are your company’s truck driver retention rates? Driving is a grueling, often thankless job, with a turnover rate of 100% yearly. How are you managing those figures? What are you doing to really listen and show appreciation for your transport drivers to improve retention rates? If you drove professionally, what would you do to let management know what’s really important to you?

    • Are your trucks safe to drive? When drivers report unsafe vehicles, how is the report treated? Are the repairs done in a timely manner?


These are just a few things that can help assess how your logistics reflect on your company’s perception. Contact Grimes Total Distribution to see how we can create strategic supply chain solutions for your company to help you make the best impression.
