Transport, transshipment & storage
Logistics is an important competitive factor in both e-commerce and wholesale. Only those who manage price, quality and time as efficiently as possible can permanently overcome price wars.
TUL is a common abbreviation for the three core activities of transport, handling and storage in logistics :
The first part of the TUL process is transportation. This includes all activities that have to do with the transport of the goods, i.e. transporting the goods from the sender to the recipient.
The transshipment process, as the second main process, means changing the goods, i.e. loading and unloading.
The final core activity is the storage of goods.

This transparency makes it more difficult for companies with poor products and services to compete. The consumer is not just the person who evaluates the products and services, but ultimately the place of origin of those needs. As a company, we use every sensory perception to sense what the customer wants and how he wants it. Customer support is not just a complaint hotline, but actually a component of purchased products. However, customer is king does not necessarily mean a hierarchical gradient in favor of the consumer. Customer is King ultimately means offering customers both the product and the service they can expect.
