Offered by the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute (GTSCL) and LeanCor Supply Chain Group.

The efficient flow of inbound materials through your supply chain can have a significant impact on cost, quality, service, and delivery to your customer. With continued pressures from globalization, market volatility, and innovation expectations, companies are extending their reliance on lean principles to outside the four walls of the manufacturing facility.  Lean inbound logistics requires strategic coordination to synchronize suppliers, transportation providers and multiple supply chain partners. And like all complex multi-party operations, the road to improvement will have its challenges. Such hurdles could include balancing inventory cost with transportation cost, the lack of leadership understanding and support, and the realities of incumbent manufacturing and procurement contracts and systems.

This free 1-hour webinar will focus on the why and how to implement lean logistics to support the lean supply chain operations – both in manufacturing and distribution. Areas of focus include: lean strategy development, identifying and overcoming operational realities, and learning about the tools necessary for successful implementation.

Brad Bossence, instructor for the GTSCL Lean Inbound Logistics course and Vice President at LeanCor Supply Chain Group will host the session. 

After attending this webinar, attendees will receive a promo code for a discount towards the "Lean Inbound Logistics" course being taught in Savannah, GA September 29-30, 2014!
