Sustainability in Logistics. Sustainable Logistics Does Not Waste.
Logistics or the Logistics department is part of every enterprise or company as inseparably as the Account Department. Unlike accounting, logistics is considered as something granted, as if there is nothing to care about. Logistics and logisticians are expected to deal with things even without information, data or documents. Ideally, without any effort, the goods will be transported from one end of the republic or world to the other one ready to be consumed or distributed.
There are more and more companies, where logistics and production are becoming one unit, however, without a firmly given order. Logistics is the drive wheel, unfortunately, with broken teeth of power whose absence makes the unit and complexity crumble into segments. These do their job, but with a lot of effort and often with costs not corresponding with the result. Logisticians are firemen extinguishing one fire so that they set another fire.
What we can teach / what you can learn
The aim of the workshop is a change of the state. The analysis of individual possibilities how logistics can be integrated, managed and checked within a unit. Modern tools, technologies, procedures, ways of leading people and operations, definitions and creating chains whose strength is harmony and complexity, those are included in the day that aims to offer the participants tools for change implementation in the company. Perform changes that will make logistics more effective as well as more economical simultaneously with the current reduction of negative impacts on the environment. An example of possible elimination of systematic errors, e.g. one-off issues, will be presented.
Course mission: To raise changes in the perception of logistics as a whole and pass on tools for process implementation in the companies where the participants perform their work.
