Challenges Faced By The Distribution Sector In Singapore And Malaysia

Increased Customer Expectations And Outdated Processes


Due to the e-commerce boom and internet connectivity, customers today expect faster deliveries of products and are very vocal about the quality and service they receive. Both of these cannot be fulfilled with the obsolete processes employed by many distribution outlets in Singapore and Malaysia.

Distribution companies often find it challenging to fulfil orders due to the sheer quantity of demand. With no systems in place to anticipate a demand surge, many struggle to gauge customer expectations on time.

Growing Unpredictability Of The Market And Increased Competition


With each passing year, markets in Singapore and Malaysia have become more and more volatile due to fragmentation. The unpredictability has all but increased with purchasing patterns changing faster than ever before.

Stricter regulations also pose a challenge to businesses that are still using outdated processes. With new entrants in the market, the competition has become more tough and margins narrower. Although delivery systems have improved with better connectivity, last mile delivery still remains a challenge with unpredictable delays and no systems in place to predict them on time.

Maintaining A Balanced Inventory


A balanced warehouse plays the most vital role in any distribution company’s success. Establishments that do not use automated systems are unable to forecast market demands in advance and are often faced with the challenge of having an imbalanced inventory, such as overstocking of slow-moving goods or understocking of fast-moving goods.

The use of manual procedures contributes to delivery errors, leading not only to delays but also to unnecessary return expenses. It increases the processing time of the order, causes delays in picking up while also involving more human resources for repetitive tasks that could be done with an automated system.
