Project Management in Logistics
In order to optimize logistics processes, many companies initiate projects on reorganization and construction of warehouse / logistics facilities. But, as a rule, during execution of such projects they have to deal with all sorts of difficulties, from inconsistencies in the project itself to communication problems when contractors misunderstand their tasks, do not fulfill the agreed scope of work till the due date, and violate other contractual obligations. All this leads to eventual failure of the project schedule and a significant increase in costs.
