Hidden waste and inefficiency exist in all logistics systems and is costly. Removing waste is usually an operational priority: some companies do it with new IT systems and some do it with increased pressure on transport providers.
At LOTS we do it differently. We look at the logistics system as part of a larger integrated process flow, not just from loading dock to loading dock. By taking a holistic view and thoroughly understanding underlying business, LOTS also minimises waste where it hides in the interface between operations: where one actor passes on to another.
LOTS undertakes to run both existing flows and greenfield operations
Existing flows are optimised and balanced, taking into consideration an extended value chain that will generate comprehensive stakeholder benefits.
For new operations, we quickly establish stable end-to-end logistics that are safe, sustainable and efficient. LOTS also undertakes to operate the logistics system and provide transport management to create a customised service solution.
LOTS creates value by eliminating waste, not by paying unfair transporter fees. By optimising the Total Cost of Logistics, LOTS create a healthy, profitable and sustainable business for all stakeholders.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is central to most companies’ operations. Not living up to CSR commitments often causes various types of waste. In addition to indirect social and reputational costs, it can lead to high direct costs for risk mitigation and rework. The conventional approach to increasing CSR commitment is often insufficient, for example simply setting up policies for CSR.
LOTS designs and sets up sustainable logistics systems. Everybody benefits from a system with a low environmental impact that nourishes local businesses and minimises process waste. Add to this a culture of systematically implementing process improvements and you will have a world-class logistics system that is a substantial competitive advantage.
Assuming a holistic approach involving all actors in a logistics system, LOTS will identify and eliminate process waste that might otherwise be overlooked. LOTS also ensures safety and compliance in challenging operations, giving our customers peace of mind.
