Lean Six Sigma for Logistics

Logistics operations generate between 10% and 40% of
product costs, and over 50% of these costs originate from
non-value-added activities. Lean Logistics ensures efficient
processes with less variation by eliminating the
limitations of productivity in the value chain: from
planning to monetization.
