Compliance in logistics
Logistic centers have become fundamental in overcoming challenges typical of companies that seek to improve production results. However, organization alone is not enough to overcome difficulties related to transparency, connection with the purpose and adherence to the corporate culture.
Such impasses, although they do not seem connected, influence the results obtained and require standardization of tasks to achieve excellence. Based on this challenge, many companies are betting on tools that aim to minimize errors and ensure the compliance of operations: a positive example is compliance.
What is compliance?
Compliance derives from the English verb “ to comply ”, which means to adapt to the laws, requirements and rules of a company. That is, it concerns the act of following and respecting protocols related to the distribution, storage and transportation of products.
Much more than “walking the line” it refers to following guidelines that guarantee the safety, well-being of the team and the expected results of a company.
Precisely for this reason, compliance is implemented when there is a need to avoid problems. It seeks to achieve maximum efficiency through standardization of operations. As a result, errors are minimized and there is greater savings in troubleshooting costs.
Compliance benefits for logistics
With the routine of warehouses, compliance manages to offer operations guides that guide activities and allow their standardization. With this, it is possible to identify a network of actions that seek high performance and can be replicated without errors.
Compliance ensures that periodic analyzes are organized in search of errors or problems. With this, it is possible to distinguish sectors that cause more inaccuracies and, consequently, activities undergo frequent revisions, always in search of the best results.
If there is a process for identifying adversities, it is possible to implement measures that mitigate improvements. In this way, prevention is always placed as a priority through the creation of solutions for possible irregularities.
Not only is it possible to establish solutions in the event of a setback, with compliance there is the ability to monitor operations to assess results and correct errors before they even cause more damage.
If projects are monitored to understand whether or not they follow the established standards, it is possible to determine processes that contain errors and that doubts are resolved quickly and easily.
To ensure that everything is in order, it is necessary to make sure that the team is engaged in the tasks and following the proposed protocols. This adhesion is essential for everything to happen exactly and should be encouraged whenever possible through training that leads professionals to walk together.
Delivering positive results to customers not only ensures their satisfaction, but provides a source of credibility for the company. And these results can be replicated, as they follow pre-established protocols, favoring consumer loyalty.
Following strategic norms attested by experts, productions are always delivered with the best solutions, achieving the highest efficiency in productions.
How to implement compliance in logistics?
With all these benefits in mind, compliance is indeed one of the quickest ways to ensure that employees are working to high quality standards. However, its implementation seems to be a separate challenge, since in large companies tasks are sectored according to specifications, making communication difficult.
Therefore, following a specific implementation strategy is essential to facilitate the process and reduce the resulting errors.
This starts with the analysis of current logistics processes and current numbers. This investigation allows one to know the possibilities and how they can be optimized.
It is worth remembering that the entire process can only be carried out if every company actively participates in decision-making and in their day-to-day application. It is the employees who will put it into practice and, together, they can point out the best actions.
Based on this participation, it will be possible to create an internal code of conduct that governs specific work standards. In order to offer better results, it is important to pay attention to external protocols that analyze actions in larger contexts.
Laws are a good example of this and some of the most applicable to the context of logistics centers are:
- CIOT (Transport Operation Identifier Code) : Inspects freight paid by carriers;
- DT-e (Electronic Transport Document) : Regulates an Electronic Transport Document, which reduces transport bureaucracy and simplifies contracting;
- LGPD (General Data Protection Law) : Guides the care and protection of customer data.
After determining this code, which guides the activities, it is necessary to carry out constant monitoring to understand where it is still necessary to implement changes. In this way, administrators understand the results obtained, deliver more effective reports and the company satisfies customers more quickly.
