Realize untapped improvement opportunities

Lean warehousing is a holistic concept aimed at tackling improvement opportunities

Lean warehousing

The concept of lean warehousing stems from techniques successfully applied in lean manufacturing for decades. Lean manufacturing is based upon the world renown Toyota Production System and aims to continuously eliminate waste, variability, and infexibility in operations. Lean warehousing simultaneously targets:

  • Reducing warehousing operating costs by increasing productivity
  • Improving perceived customer quality by avoiding order deviations, picking errors, and damaged goods
  • Strengthening service levels by shortening lead times and improving on-shelf availability
