What Is Internal Logistics?

As we achieve a con­tin­u­ous flow with­in an oper­a­tion, it’s com­mon for sup­port­ing sys­tems to lag behind in devel­op­ment. One exam­ple is that mate­r­i­al han­dling and parts sup­ply process­es are neglect­ed. As a result, they can’t keep up with the faster pace of one-piece flow. This requires that we build a sys­tem of inter­nal logis­tics that enables con­tin­u­ous flow. Learn the def­i­n­i­tion and scope of inter­nal logis­tics, the five main dif­fer­ences between flow-focused and tra­di­tion­al logis­tics, and the five build­ing blocks of this system.
