Why material entry into the manufacturing 
supply chain is as critical as its departure.

"The entry and flow of goods through a facility are often neglected or overlooked, yet they resemble challenges experienced in the Last Mile.

As the final step in the supply chain, the Last Mile has always been a focus of improvement: "how do we cut costs? How do we get goods to the customer faster than on-time?" It's predicted that self-driving vehicles will make long-haul transportation fully autonomous and generate a savings of 40% per km in the near future.

But what if these methodologies were applied to indoor logistics? The Last Mile, although paramount to the customer, is only half of the equation. Lessons learned can be identified and applied to transportation that occurs inside a facility, otherwise known as the First Mile, to improve overall productivity in the supply chain.

This eBook will teach you how to improve first mile processes today.
