What is Order Shipment Cycle Time?
The number of hours required to process a customer order, from the time when the order is placed until the time the order is shipped by the supplier.
Why should Order Shipment Cycle Time be measured?
Order Shipment Cycle Time measures the speed and productivity with which suppliers process and prepare orders for delivery to their customers. A high value for this KPI may be related to a number of systematic inefficiencies within the order fulfillment process, such as slow order entry processes, understaffed loading docks, poor inventory management, and/or inaccurate demand forecasts. High shipping cycle times may lead to customer dissatisfaction, especially in cases where customers can track the shipping status of an order. High shipping cycle times can also lead to higher costs per order and can bottleneck the shipment of other orders when warehousing space is scarce.
