Administration and Logistics is a field that has evolved to a science in its own right. Now more than ever, it is crucial to use our resources effectively and minimize non value-adding movement of goods in the supply chain. Due to Supply Chain complexities and cost pressures, it is absolutely crucial to keep the minimum amount of cash tied up in inventory and the distribution network, while satisfying the customer to the maximum.
This workshop will provide you insight into the thinking, and help you gather the best-practice tools and techniques to do this.
