LEAN logistics reduces costs
As is well known, transport is not a value added in the sense of LEAN thinking and therefore nobody is willing to pay for it. Nevertheless, logistics cannot be eliminated from the company. Thus, in LEAN logistics, the goal is to make logistics as efficient as possible and to keep it as low as necessary. The focus here is on controlling and designing logistics processes. The goal is to reduce throughput times and inventories while still ensuring process reliability and delivery readiness.
