What is the difference between cargo and logistics?


First, modern logistics service companies must master advanced management technology, and communicate with relevant units based on information exchange and information processing technology and equipment; traditional cargo forwarders mainly rely on cargo equipment, such as warehouses and fleets. In the cargo forwarding business, the source of the information mainly depends on the customers themselves.


Second, cargo forwarding services usually take the customer's instructions as the starting point. In comparison, this type of service is passive; while the goal of logistics services is to continuously meet customer needs and help customers formulate business strategies. So it is proactive and plays a guiding role.


Third, modern logistics services do not necessarily engage in specific cargo work. Its main task is to provide customers with transportation management services by selling advanced cargo-integrated management technology to relevant customers, focusing on the overall transportation link, and therefore, they may not actually engage in specific cargo work like cargo forwarders. To transport the customer's goods from one point to another designated point.


Fourth, cargo forwarders only participate in cargo-related activities, but modern logistics services may also provide customers with global ordering and supply services. Therefore, modern logistics services have a wider scope and are more closely connected with enterprises in the supply chain.


Fifth, modern logistics service companies need a complete logistics network. How to establish and improve their own logistics network is more important than that of an enterprise that only engages in cargo forwarding. Without a perfect network, it is impossible to do a good job in supply chain management and transportation services.
