Leveraging Lean Logistics to Lead in the 21st Century!

Speaker: Mike Ford

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 subject is very timely with the release of APICS’ new Certified in Logistics, Transportation and Distribution (CLTD). Join Michael Ford as he utilizes a unique combination of slideshow presentation, roundtable discussion, interactive Q&A to attain the following learning objectives.

What you will learn:

  • What is logistics and what is the goal of logistics?
  • Lean warehousing techniques such as cross-docking and drop-shipping
  • Lean material handling and storage techniques

 What you will take from the presentation:

  • The trade-off between shrinking lot sizes and increasing deliveries
  • Design for Logistics (DFL) opportunities
  • Sustainability improvements through reverse logistics (reduce, reuse, recycle)

 

Who should attend:  

  • Warehouse, Distribution, Logistics and Transportation Professionals
  • Supply Chain, Operations and Procurement Executives / Professionals
