Lower risk – logistics as an operational not capital expenditure
When bERS divides the cost of operations among different clients, the 3PL operator bERS provides an optimal service price. When the service volume decreases, there is a constant loss due to the fixed costs for maintaining the facilities, equipment, service employees, transport vehicles, software, etc. The fixed costs are the risk which the commercial entities undertake when they organize the logistics and distribution activities internally.
By outsourcing to bERS, the client turns those costs from fixed to variable as they pay only for real used space and real provided work results and may treat logistics as an operational expense, rather than capital expenditure. Thus, the client may continue to control investments in core activities where the return on investment is higher and benefit from flexibility as to arranging the required level of logistics services according to current demand.
