by making logistics part of business strategy
Logistics have become central to product strategy because, it is increasingly clear, products are not just things-with-features. They are things-with-features bundled with services. Companies do not create value for customers and sustainable advantages for themselves merely by offering varieties of tangible goods. Rather, they offer goods in distinct ways, presuming that consumers value convenience, reliability, and support. They are in an implicit and complex relationship with customers.
The challenge is to manage the whole of it. Pyramis Cargo offers Tailored Services that help businesses go beyond by making logistics a part of the business strategy. Value is created by allowing businesses to develop newer products and expand to newer markets, with logistics not being an impediment, but a value creator.
