In April 2018 APQC spoke with a transportation planning manager at an automaker regarding how it approaches large-scale improvements in inbound materials flow. Read this case study to see how his team: 

  • optimized how inbound materials are stored and transferred
  • ensure deliveries are made to the right dock, at the right time
  • ensure deliveries were right sized
