Collaborative Logistics Management in Supply Chains

Partnership shipping to reduce waste and increase profit

Program Description:

As manufacturers continue to eliminate waste through just-in-time and small-batch production, suppliers have had to deliver smaller batches of material more often. This situation has put a strain on the logistics networks simply because more trips are taken with less volume shipped during each trip. Collaborative logistics management is the solution to this logistical problem, providing companies in the same area with the option to collaborate on their logistics deliveries when delivering to the same area, allowing less trips overall. In the Collaborative Logistics Management in Supply Chains program, participants will learn how to establish or manage their own collaborative logistics network. Through collaborative logistics, companies will achieve lower logistic costs and faster deliveries. The program is customized to take into account the circumstances of each organization and their needs. The faculty instructor for the Collaborative Logistics Management in Supply Chains seminar is a seasoned supply chain professional with more than 30 years of experience working with manufacturers, wholesale distributors, and third-party service providers in the automotive, paper, pharmaceutical, and consumer packaged goods industries, among others. He is an early adopter of lean supply chain methodologies and has based his numerous successes on the salient philosophy that waste can and must be eliminated to increase the bottom line. He is now the managing director of the University of San Diego’s Supply Chain Management Institute where he is building a bridge between academia and private interests for collaboration of progressive supply chain management studies. In this customized TNI seminar, participants will learn how collaborative logistics management and lean supply chain practices can reduce waste and cost by coordinating just-in-time and small-batch production with other suppliers shipping to the same geographic area. Participants will take away a set of tools and skills to immediately—and substantially—improve their negotiating performance.
