What is Halal logistics? What is its importance in today’s world? Why should we care about Halal logistics as Muslims? What is the size of the Halal logistics market globally? How can companies prepare themselves for becoming Shariah-compliant in terms of Halal logistics and halal supply chain management?
These are important questions as our number one job as Halal manufacturers and marketers is to make sure that our Muslim customers actually get the products we send in the Halal way possible.
Let us try to understand the concept of Halal logistics by going through a few other terms.
Logistics is the science of making Thing A and delivering it to Point B.
Halal logistics is the process of managing the material flow and information flow throughout the supply chain in accordance with approved Halal standards. The material flow covers the transport, storage, and terminal operations. The information flow covers the management of data in the supply chain, such as product information, demand data, and Halal logistics label and code. Halal logistics is a system based on segregation instead of detection.
Halal products are segregated from non-halal products to:
1. Avoid (cross) contamination
2. Avoid making mistakes
3. Ensure consistency with the expectations of the Muslim consumer
