Logistics is a primary process for companies as it contributes considerably to getting the right products, at the right place, at the right time and against the lowest cost1. Many companies in the supply chain outsource this function and logistics service providers (LSPs) operate the flow, hence LSPs are the lubricant of supply chains. Outsourcing primary processes to specialists to create shipper value is a strategic decision, yet the shippers perceive outsourcing of logistics as simply outsourcing some operational activities to reduce costs. LSPs are under increasing pressure, because shippers demand continuously higher performance while cascading their last minute crises2 to the LSPs. Lean management emerged in manufacturing to create customer value while reducing waste. Lean companies balance flexibility (batch size 1) with uninterrupted flows (100% process control). In essence these are the challenges LSPs face as well.(fragment tekstu)
