Vertical Solutions: Logistics & Distribution
Logistics and distribution is typically a low-margin industry, heavily reliant on a high volume of activity to generate profit. Therefore, for logistics and distribution companies ensuring the scalability and reliability of their back-office business systems, while achieving operational efficiencies, is of crucial importance.
Logistics and distribution companies require enhanced inter-system communication between their supply chain management (SCM), electronic data interchange (EDI), and other enterprise systems. They also need to automate any processes currently performed manually to reduce human error, save time, and lower costs.
The logistics and distribution industry is characterized by frequent M&A transactions. This means that companies often are required to abandon established work processes and adopt new ones at short notice. The more adaptable and flexible their IT infrastructure, the smoother and more efficient will be their transition to new systems.

Magic’s technology provides the system interoperability, scalability, and flexibility that logistics and distribution companies need to succeed.
