Delivery lead time is one of the most critical and strategic measurements for outbound logistics. But as with other KPIs, it should be considered carefully. Averages across benchmarks must be weighted by factors like market share, to make sure that higher or lower volume brands or markets don’t skew results. Furthermore, similar performance can have very different impacts depending on strategy. For example, the implications of longer order-to-delivery lead times are different for a manufacturer with a high sold-order and customisation content, compared with a carmaker that sells almost all cars from stock.

The time taken to get a car through the compound to a dealer’s forecourt also has natural variations. Different model types require different tests, accessory installs or special handling and at times of slack demand, a slow performance may be financially advantageous and therefore deliberate. 

Such a measurement is usually broken up into its component pieces, such as the turnaround time at terminals or rail loading. However, it is debatable from which point you should start measuring time. If you gauge it from when a transporter enters the gate until it leaves again, you won’t capture how long it queued to get into the terminal in the first place. Truckers might be able to provide that data, but there may be questions about its accuracy.
