Logistics pooling refers to a collaborative approach in logistics management where several companies combine their resources to optimize transportation and distribution processes. It involves sharing transportation vehicles, warehouses, and other facilities, as well as jointly planning and executing logistics operations.
The main objective of logistics pooling is to achieve cost savings and efficiency improvements by leveraging economies of scale and scope. By pooling their resources, companies can reduce empty truck miles, minimize warehouse space requirements, and improve overall transportation utilization.
This leads to reduced costs and increased sustainability in logistics operations.
