A Discussion of Lean Supply Chain Strategies

In this episode Chris and Cerasis’ Marketing Manager & “The Freight Project Podcast” host, Adam Robinson, and Chuck will have a great discussion around why if supply chain executives want to achieve their desired outcomes in omnichannel, customer experience, final mile, collaboration, and more, they should take a look at some of the fundamental applications of lean supply chain strategies.

In this “The Freight Project Podcast” episode you’ll get answers to the following questions:

  • What are lean supply chain strategies according to Chuck’s applied experience?
  • What are some of the first areas of focus that a pro should look at to start lean supply chain strategies application?
  • What are some of the initial hurdles to change that you’ve seen faced by the staff when management or leadership starts to deploy these lean supply chain strategies?
  • Once these initiatives are put in place and adopted, what are some of the benefits that a company will see?
  • From blockchain to AI, visibility and automation are top of mind for many supply chain pros. How do those technologies come into play in the lean supply chain? Can maybe TOO much technology or chasing the “trend” be a distraction away from sound fundamentals?
  • What is voice of the customer, and why it’s vital in lean supply chain strategies to focus on VOC?
  • What is the one piece of advice you’d give the generation that is now coming up and running the supply chain?
