  In a broad sense, full customer projects service is the output of the entire logistics system. It involves making sure that the right (project role) person receive the right product with the right quantity, at the right place, at the right time, in the right condition and at the right cost. At present, many logistics company may have a customer service department that handles complains, special orders, damage claims, returns, billing problems, etc.

  Transportation refers to the physical movement of our access telecom network goods from one point to another point. It includes specific activities such as selecting the transport mode, choosing the particular route, selecting the right carrier, complying with various local transportation regulations. Transportation is usually the most costly logistics activity. It may account for 40%~60% of a company’s total logistics cost. Therefore, how to make a efficient, cost effective transportation between our business is so important.

(5)Equipment and accessaries warehousing

  Warehousing is an integral part of every logistics system. It plays an important role in providing a desired level of customer service at the lowest possible total cost. It refers to decide where goods can be stored for a particular period of time.

  Material handling is, in a broad sense, concerning all short-distance movements of raw materials, goods working in process, or finished goods within a equipment factory or products warehouse. As materials handling tend to add costs rather than value to fiber optics equipment logistics system, managers tend to minimize the number of handling processs whenever possible.

(8) Packaging

  Industrial packaging focuses on protecting the product while it is being transported and stored. It conveys important information to inform our global fiber project customer and provides protection during storage and transport. In marketing sense, the package acts as a form of promotion and advertising. Its size, weight, color, and printed information attract customers and convey knowledge about the product.

(9) Information management

  Information system could link all logistics areas together. Information processing is becoming increasingly automated, complex, and rapid. Efficient functioning is critical for the system, which is our goal.

(10) Other logistics activities

  Other activities such as waste disposal, return goods handling, and etc. are also important. Logistics managers have to consider the social costs associated with waste disposal.
