The Business Directory Ranking Process

  • We have 3 Listing Types - (Lifetime, Premium and Free ). Our Directory system automatically ranks listings first by Membership Type....
  • To find out about Membership Types see our business advertising options.
  • All Listings are then prioritised using a 'Ratings & Review Score'.  We believe Star Ratings and Reviews from customers or suppliers fairly measure the trustworthiness and dependability of a company.
  • Listings with Reviews are automatically listed above listings with No Reviews.
  • In other words, businesses with Reviews are shown at the top of the page (within their Business Category and within their Membership Type) and thus enjoy the highest Click Through Rates from visitors to the Directory
  • If two listings (in the same Category) have an Identical Rating Score, the business listing with the Most Reviews will rank higher than the Business with fewer reviews.
  • Other companies with No Reviews are then ordered by 'Most Recently Submitted' to the Directory.
  • The owners of these newly listed organisations may not have had a chance to ask their customers or suppliers to post a positive review yet.
  • In summary, the Overall Star Rating Score for each rated Business is calculated using a combination of the Total Number of Reviews combined with the Average Numeric Score of all Rated Reviews for that listing.

Overview of the Logistics Sectors

Businesses that engage in the logistics sector distribute, process and transfer goods from their position of embarkation to their destination locality. This may be anything from raw materials, industrial supplies or finished goods that require relocating between manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and consumers. All items being moved through the supply chain must be identified on a scheduled inventory, and then consigned to a place of storage or usage.

Specialist logistics brokers and consultants can help to implement a solution to complex obstacles within a logistics supply chain. They are sometimes able to source warehousing and help customers fill up surplus space in their own warehouses. They are able to identify clients’ needs and correctly match them with businesses and other clients to provide a resolution for both parties. They are in effect the ‘middle man’ of the operation, and help to negotiate between logistics carriers and clients. This helps ensure customer’s needs are met by sourcing the most competitive freight rates.

Specialist distribution and logistics companies organise the storage and disposal of goods. It is vitally important that they oversee the procedure and ensure that the correct products are on time and on target to the correct destination and within the realms of the budget quoted. It is important that all parts of the process (from tracking stock levels and delivery times electronically through to transport costs and storage of goods.)

Freight and cargo transport corporations are involved in the transportation of goods or cargo, (such as household items, fresh and frozen meat and seafood, machinery and other components). These are typically transported via road, rail, sea or air. The transporter is laden with commercial goods that are then transported to another destination to be used or stored until required. When goods are loaded upon a carrier such as a ship, plane etc, they need to be thoroughly checked and inspected. This ensures that goods are not over laden and that they are bound for the correct destination and due to arrive on time. This is vital due to the fact that most Western countries import million of tons of cargo every year (mostly by vast cargo tankers and ships docking into industrial ports).

Engaging the help of inspecting and surveying specialists is a vital part of logistics. Through every part of a supply chain, they can supply equipment such as cranes and machinery, distribute and transport goods and inspect inventories and documents. These services help ensure goods are custom cleared, and no problems arise with local or international clients. It is important they check every process to guarantee export and import regulations are met. As well as travelling and distributing goods and material throughout the day, there are also numerous international delivery operations that typically function during the night.

All types of relevant information about Logistics such as international and overnight carriers as well as removals and storage and same day may be sourced from an online business directory such as thebusinessindex.com. This will show numerous reputable logistic companies on an international basis as well as reviews about their standard of service and reputation.

Trucking logistics involves the process of researching and scheduling trucking operations. This can include route planning and most cost-effective way to deliver the goods from A-B, whilst overseeing that the correct grade fuel has been used and hiring optimum trucks and the best fleet of drivers for the job.

Trailer Supplies can supply a whole host of vehicle attachments and trailer fleet for use when distributing and transporting materials, liquids and refrigerated food in chilled vans, freezer trucks and reefer trailers.

Online freight can reach a huge a huge proportion of potential clients and can promote their services to a worldwide audience. They can show updates of changing rates, change quotes and give details of company profiles whilst providing links to various companies and businesses connected to logistics. With the latest smart phones and tablets, it is possible to download apps that enable clients and agents to manage their freight as well as update orders, release stock, dispatch drivers and basically anything that needs to be done to complete the process.

Logistics software solutions are tailor-made software packages designed for desktops, servers and internet. It provides an easy access service and offers solutions to meet the client’s needs. It covers International as well as domestic and European freight software and has programs for specific areas of logistics such as Warehouse Management, Projects, Budgets and Customer Relations.

The logistics sector is strongly linked to the production output of countries (particularly in terms of consumption of raw materials and production of physical manufactured goods). When output declines the logistics sector suffers. According to a 2012 Logistics report, there has been a decrease in inland domestic freight volumes which fell to 11% below the pre-recession figures of 2007.
