Supply chain dictionary : lean logistics

Imagine a logistics company that operates like a Formula 1 team: fast, fluid, and without waste. This is the essence of Lean logistics, an operations management approach that aims to eliminate “muda,” or activities that do not add value to the customer.

Lean logistics focuses on the essentials:

  • Delivering the right product, to the right place, at the right time, and at the right cost.
  • Eliminating unnecessary steps, unnecessary inventory, and waiting times.
  • Improving the quality and reliability of service.

Lean logistics has many advantages:

  • Cost reduction:lower inventory, transportation, errors, etc.
  • Improved productivity:increased time savings, efficiency, and flexibility.
  • Better customer satisfaction:faster, more reliable, and more accurate deliveries.

In summary, Lean logistics is a powerful approach to transforming the supply chain and creating a more efficient and agile business.
