The most important aspects of the logistics industry are safety and efficiency. At the end of May, LogiNext, a Mumbai-based SaaS company, unveiled its most advanced location-tracking SDK to help more logistics companies and e-commerce platforms gain necessary insights on traffic data so that they can provide a better customer experience. LogiNext users just need to install the location tracking SDK into their smartphones to discover their real-time location, movement, surrounding traffic conditions, and estimated time of arrival.

Logistics companies, especially small, private ones, can offer more accurate and efficient services with LogiNext’s tracing software — feedback traffic data from the tracking software plays a key role in the companies’ performance development and market expansion.

A small Chinese logistics sub-company recently told us that because of its role as a sub-company, it can’t be as efficient as a large company at service quality and delivery speed. The only advantage it has over its larger competitors is its lower price, but this lower price does not allow them to ensure the quality of the service.
