Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The article offers information on the application of lean principles to achieve continuous flow in third party logistics providers (3PLs). It mentions that lean management principles and practices have been traditionally applied to manufacturing systems and try to make products flow through the supply chain without interruptions. Topics discussed include lean management of flow in logistics operations, conditions for continuous workflow and empirical research design.
