FAQ about custom software development for logistics

If you consider to launch a transportation software, there are many questions might arise in your mind, and we are ready to answer to few of them right now.

How Much Time Will You Take To Build Logistics Software?

The logistics software development usually takes 3-6 months. This period is more of a business reason than a technical one since no matter how complex the project is technical, its implementation cannot be delayed. If the release is delayed and you cannot offer the client anything in the first 6 months, then there are two options: either you have taken on a very difficult task that requires completely different funding, or you have not correctly estimated the average cost to develop a Minimum Viable Product for SaaS.

How Much Does A Transportation Software Cost?

Usually, the price for transportation software development is 70k-150k according to the experience of 15 SaaS projects in 10 years. Please note, we calculate the cost based on the fact that our any expert costs $ 50 per hour on average. Of course, there are companies that can offer a cheaper price, but they can hardly promise a quality guarantee. What we have described above also includes product design, i.e. price for development from scratch, starting from the list of requirements. Your next step is a product design and nothing else, which costs 5000 dollars with us.

What Are The Main Activities Of Logistics Systems?

When referring to logistics flows, we are talking about the movement and direction of certain goods, parcels, packages, items, or information within a supply chain network. More specifically, between the point at which the products or information originated and the final consumption point. Three main directions correspond with the three logistical processes which we are going to focus on today. These are inbound logistics, outbound logistics, and reverse logistics. The information about these three supply chain directions is essential to know, especially to people inclined in the logistics industry.
