ABSTRACT

Leveraging Lean Logistics to Lead in the 21st Century!

Recent analysis provides estimates that logistics costs in the USA represent over 8% of GDP, roughly 1.4 trillion dollars! This presentation will take a lean look at logistics and focus on how we can add value through warehousing, distribution, and transportation. The following topics will be discussed:

  • What is the goal of logistics?
  • Lean warehousing techniques such as cross-docking and drop-shipping
  • The trade-off between shrinking lot sizes and increasing deliveries
  • Lean material handling and storage
  • Design for Logistics (DFL) opportunities
  • Sustainability improvements through reverse logistics (reduce, reuse, recycle)
