Logistics

Improve your line stops, inventory turns, materials management and work in progress with our Lean Logistics Program.

Lean Logistics is usually an afterthought for operations when, in fact, it can become the showstopper for your clients. Trying to reverse engineer Lean Logistics into an existing operation can test the best and the bravest. However, GENEO has helped clients move away from just-in-case inventory management to dynamic pull systems with levelled production and Kanban systems suited to their environment.  If you have a High Bay carrying stock that hasn’t turned for a couple of years or WIP and Finished Goods that move reluctantly through the value stream, then GENEO can help transform your logistics programme.
